We are looking for teens who want to be reporters, even if English is not their strongest subject.

If you like talking to people, finding out what's going on, experiencing new things or expressing your opinions, Young Post wants to hear from you.

If you're interested in blue whales, keen on conservation work, or have questions for green experts, read on.

On May 23, National Geographic Channel is bringing its breathtaking Big Blue Multimedia Exhibitions in Hong Kong. Meticulously crafted over six months by a team of experts in Australia, the beautiful, sophisticated, nine-metre-long sculpture of a baby blue whale will be on display at IFC Mall for 10 days.

A specially chosen squad of students will be given the opportunity to explore the event and talk to environmental experts.

Then the exciting stuff begins.

The students will each have a special part of an assignment to fulfil. Once their reports are written, our editors will weave their magic and combine them into a story which will appear in Young Post.

If you would like to be part of this Special Assignment, e-mail by May 18 with 'Big Blue' in the header field. Write us a paragraph of 100 words or less about blue whales, demonstrating your passion and interest.

Don't forget to add your name, age, phone number and school. P.S. All good reporters research their stories.
