Hope and George are BNY Mellon Young Sports Reporters of the Year!

Posted on Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Two fantastic young writers have been named the BNY Mellon Young Sports Reporters of the Year, seeing off stiff competition from over a thousand talented students. Hope Bhargava, aged 10, from Rhodes Avenue Primary School, London, and George Garside, aged 12, from Torquay Boys’ Grammar School, Devon, celebrated their success with a VIP trip to The BNY Mellon Boat Race which took place on Sunday.

Hope and George both submitted exceptional journalistic reports of last year’s Boat Race to win their prize. One of the judges, leading BBC sports broadcaster Jonathan Legard, said of their entries – “Hope’s report grabbed my attention with a great opening line and held me until the last word, capturing the pace and relentlessness of the race. George really brought the race to life with some outstanding descriptive phrases, showing a true reporter’s eye for detail. You felt you learnt everything you needed to know about the drama of such a unique occasion.”

Nicky Cox, Editor and Co-founder of First News, said on judging the entries: “I was stunned by the incredibly high standard of writing in the Young Sports Reporter of the Year competition. I would be happy to give any one of the young reporters a job and hope they will come knocking on my door in a few years’ time.”

The BNY Mellon Young Sports Reporter of the Year is an exciting literacy competition that gives students from across the country an opportunity to develop their journalism skills. This year the award attracted entries from 1,052 students at 975 schools nationwide, and special commendations were given to Ben Hoggan, aged 11 from Holy Trinity CE Primary School, Marlow in Buckinghamshire, and Joshua Hoad, aged 11 years from Berkhamsted School, Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire.

The winning reports can be viewed at www.whichblueareyou.com/young-sports-reporter and both winner’s schools can look forward to a visit from a representative from the winning Boat Race crew, and an award from BNY Mellon.
