This year, about 500 students from 53 secondary schools participated in the third edition of the Young Reporter News Challenge (《我来报新闻》挑战赛) and competed in one of the three categories: "Fresh news", "Re-tell news" and "News Bites 60". "Fresh News" required students to present an original news piece of 1 to 2 minutes. "Re-tell" news required students to work with existing content and spin a new tale on the news piece. "News Bites 60" stretched students' creativity in producing news content of up to 60 seconds in a fun but factual manner.

2. Jointly organised by the Committee to Promote Chinese Language Learning (CPCLL), MediaCorp 8world, Speak Mandarin Campaign, with support from the Singapore Centre for Chinese Language, the competition aims to develop students' interest and ability to communicate and present in Mandarin, as well as their media literacy skills.

3. Ms Gan Siow Huang, Minister of State for Education and Chairperson of the CPCLL, presented awards to the 31 winning teams at the Awards Ceremony. Please refer to the Annex for the list of winning teams. Entries of finalists can be found at https://www.8world.com/young-reporter-news-challenge-2024.
