Ideas for stories:

This year the BBC are particularly keen to hear stories about; 

•   Young people and all things digital from young vloggers, coders and app designers to schools who are using interesting technology

•    Political engagement (or lack of) and campaigning amongst young people.

•    And any strong first person account like the one on alzheimers. 

Have you got any ideas?  Email them to - clearly stating your name and form.

Watch this excellent report from a school about the pressures of living in the online age...
