You will submit a 1-page document detailing your final project idea. It should explain why this story matters now and what new information you’ll be reporting. Briefly give some light background, how you would approach the reporting and why you’re a good fit to report this story.

You will also detail an outlet you plan to pitch the story to and briefly describe the targeted audience.

You might change ideas later, or you might submit a few ideas, but I need to see that you’ve spent time thinking about this project. The idea should be at least 1 page, double-spaced and include any relevant links.

Please do not waste page space with headings and such — I’ll know it’s yours because it’s a document in your Google Drive folder.

Due: 5:30 p.m. ET, Monday, May 25
Submission: Create a Google Doc in our shared Drive folder
Value: 50 points
