The BBC Blast reporter scheme is returning once again for the summer months. It's an opportunity for one young local person to work alongside the BBC Cornwall webteam, producing your very own web pages. Find out how to apply.
BBC Blast takes place in Cornwall from July through until September 2009. It's an opportunity for one enthusiastic young person, aged between 18-22 to go out and about reporting on various music style events and stories in Cornwall.
BBC Cornwall has been home to local blast reporters for many years, and has proven to be a great grounding for future journalists.
