On this page, we're looking for you to submit a news article with an interview or on-the-ground report where you are the source. A press conference, sporting event, an interview with a politician -- these are examples of what we call original reporting.

On this page, we're looking for you to submit a news article or summary based on sources you've found online. Did the President announce something? Did a company launch a new product or service?

Submit a revision on a news article and have it approved: Go to on any news article and click the "Edit" button found at the top right.
