Shantou students from Grade Three to Eight will have the opportunity to be reporters and hosts and report news on the 2021 Asian Youth Games, the Shantou Daily reported.

A launching ceremony of a competition that aims to select young reporters and hosts among primary and middle school students for the Games was held Saturday.

Winners of the competition will become members of a reporters' team and a hosts' team. Overseas Chinese teenagers will also be invited to contribute to a platform dedicated to cultural exchanges between Shantou's citizens and overseas Chinese.

Zheng Yekai, a student from Guangxia School, said that if he is selected he will work hard to convey to the world the features of Shantou and the news about the Games.

Further information on registration will be released via multiple channels such as the Shantou Daily, Shantou Radio, Shantou TV, and the Shantou Olive Channel.
