Bläcket is a tool where children and youth can play-act the role of the journalist. Together, pupils become an editorial staff as they create news stories and fact­-check existing news reporting.
Jury’s comment’s: "A meaningful, engaging and well-implemented concept that suggests a playful way to learn about ethical journalism. A fine process, a well crafted material and a high visual level have produced a teaching aid with innovative methods and forms of collaboration."

How can we create an early relationship to the local media amongst children?

The concept is about establishing a collaboration between local journalists, schools and pupils. As physical newspapers have become increasingly digitized, children have less insight into the media world of adults. Children and youth today risk growing up with a weak connection to local media. ”Little Journalist” aims to restore that connection.
