Young people asked for their views on media portrayal
The government is urging young people to express feelings about the way they are portrayed by the media, in the form of a competition.
Launched last Tuesday by the Hansard Society and the House of Lords, the competition is open to 11- to 16-year-olds through youth groups, schools and other official organisations.
Raw Deal or Truth Told? Young People in the Media will ask entrants to look at issues such as media portrayals of youth culture, negative press coverage and the importance of celebrity and sporting role models.
