DETROIT — Chevrolet is seeking entries for its kid reporter competition, a PLAY BALL initiative in conjunction with Major League Baseball, that gives two winners an opportunity to interview top talent at the 2018 MLB All-Star Game presented by Mastercard this July in Washington, D.C.
The competition is a national search for children 8-14 years old who are passionate about sports and interested in reporting. Does your son or daughter have what it takes? Chevrolet makes it simple to enter at www.chevybaseball.com
Here’s what’s required:
- Kids must submit a 30-60 second video that shows off their on-camera skills by May 31.
- Video should showcase interview questions and knowledge of MLB stars. Be creative and fun.
- Judging will be based on on-camera presence, baseball passion and clarity/enunciation.
Chevrolet will select two winners from the submissions. Each reporter will win a trip for four to Washington, D.C., to attend the Midsummer Classic and will have a chance to interview players and coaches during MLB’s All-Star Media Day.
