Coquitlam Centre Seeks Young Writers


You might be tapped in to your markets with a center blogger and a teen advisory board, but have you ever considering combining the two? That’s the project Coquitlam Centre is working on right now.

The center has reached out to local teens, looking for someone both media savvy and socially connected enough to reach out and capture the attention of its 13-18 year old shoppers. It’s currently looking for entries, 300-word original blog posts on any topic. Coquitlam Centre judges will go through the entries and pick out five finalists.

From there, the finalists will be invited to a VIP event, where they’ll be given their assignment packages. These packages contain details about the competition and an exclusive invitation to attend a professional writing and fashion style workshop by style editor Catherine Dunwoody.

Each week after the event, the five finalists will need to write a blog post on a pre-selected topic. To win each weekly challenge, the young bloggers will need to get more Likes for their posts the center’s Facebook page than their peers.

At the end of the challenge period, all five finalists will be invited to bring a guest and attend the center’s “Celebrity Make-Over Party,” where they’ll receive a $200 Coquitlam Centre Gift Card and a deluxe SWAG bag. Then one will be crowned winner of the contest.

From there, the winner’s duties are just beginning. After they take home their Grand Prize Package (including a new iPad or iPhone 4S, cosmetic package and $500 Sephora Gift Card), they’ll begin a Behind the Scenes internship at the center. Along with the usual, the internship will include a chance to participate in a video shoot and a major style event.
