COURIER seeks student reporter, photographer

Thursday, September 26 is Claremont Day at the Los Angeles County Fair. With a discounted entry fee and Claremont-centric events the day will draw tons of local students on field trips as well as Claremont families.

Are you a Claremont student aged 13 and younger who will be hitting the fair with your classroom or your parents? We’re looking for kid correspondents willing to share what they see and do, one armed with a pen and notepad and another carrying a camera.

If you’re interested in serving as a COURIER reporter covering Claremont Day at the fair, let us know. We’d love to see your story of at least 500 words about exhibits, animals, attractions, fair food—whatever catches your fancy. Contact us, too, if you’re a budding photographer prepared to capture several print or digital photographs of your fair adventure.

To apply for this fun, one-time gig, contact education reporter Sarah Torribio at and tell us why you’re perfect for the job.

If we pick you, we’d be happy to provide you with an orientation in advance, either in person or over the phone, on how to tell a story in words and pictures. Make sure your family and/or teacher are aware you’ll be on assignment on fair day.

If you take on this job, be prepared for a little attention. The COURIER print edition has a circulation of 4,500 (our website has 6800 unique visitors weekly), so many eyes will admire your work accompanied by your byline. If you’re interested, drop us a line, including your name, phone number and the school you attend. Make sure you ask mom and dad first.

Go ahead. Give yourself a shot. It’s only “fair”!
