For the second year running, Young Post, the SCMP's schools supplement, was awarded a jury commendation in the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers' World Young Reader Prize. The competition looks for innovative projects run by newspapers to encourage young readers to interact with their product in some way. Last year, Young Post received a jury commendation in the Making the News category with a project that allowed local secondary students to experience life as journalists, pitching, writing and planning the layout for a local news story. This year Young Post editor Susan Ramsay, web editor Olivia Chavassieu and the rest of the team focused on the Public Service category, covering issues like the environment, literacy, and civic involvement. The team named the project Heritage Detectives, and called on students to interview elderly people and unearth unusual stories from the city's past. Students were invited to a workshop in March, in which Ramsay explained how to write a good story and Post photographer Jonathan Wong shared tips on taking photos. Speakers from the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and the Hong Kong Heritage Project also advised students. Some 40 teams submitted entries, and the best six were published as Young Post cover stories. According to the prize jury's notes, Young Post's entry 'was a great way to get young people out of the classroom and into their communities to find out about their heritage'.
