High school students: You can be a Tribe Reporter for a Day!


Tribe Reporters for a Day can sit in on Terry Francona’s daily meeting with the media.

If you are a high school student in grades 9-12 interested in a career in sports writing, reporting, broadcasting or journalism, you will not want to miss this opportunity!

The Tribe Reporter for a Day experience includes the opportunity to observe Manager Terry Francona’s daily media briefing, interview Cleveland Indians team players and/or coaches in a press conference (subject to availability), listen to career background and advice from Indians Beat Writer, Paul Hoynes and receive two (2) tickets to see the Tribe take on the Minnesota Twins at 7:05 p.m. that evening.

For a chance to be selected as one of the 25 Tribe Reporters for a Day, send The Plain Dealer an essay that addresses the following two questions:

1. Why do you want to be a sports writer, reporter, broadcaster or journalist?

2. If selected, how will the opportunity of being a Tribe Reporter for a Day help and/or support your career ambitions?
