What you could submit

It is completely up to you what kind of content you pitch! It could be anything from a written blog to creating a chatty video for TikTok. If you’re not sure and want some inspiration there are some examples of content we have shared below. 

We have featured blogs on various subjects from young people across Scotland. Past topics have included climate activism, feminism and mental health. Check out a few examples of blogs:

Or head over to our Youth Voice page for lots of ideas and inspiration! If you’re comfortable in front of the camera and want to create a video we can take submissions for short or longer format videos. In the past we have featured videos of young people sharing tips on staying safe online, talking about their apprenticeships or sharing a day in their life.
