By Justin Cupler | May 21st, 2018

Is your child passionate about sports? Do they like being in front of the camera? Then you’re in luck! Chevrolet is seeking entries for its kid reporter competition, a PLAY BALL initiative in conjunction with Major League Baseball. This competition will pick two winners and give them an opportunity to interview top talent at the 2018 MLB All-Star Game this July in Washington, D.C.

All kids, ages 8-14 years old, are encouraged to show off their passion for sports and reporting by submitting a video. The competition is a national search for children 8-14 years old who are passionate about sports and interested in reporting. Does your son or daughter have what it takes? Chevrolet makes it simple to enter at

Here’s what’s required:

  • Kids must submit a 30-60 second video that shows off their on-camera skills by May 31.
  • Video should showcase interview questions and knowledge of MLB stars. Be creative and have fun!
  • Judging will be based on on-camera presence, baseball passion, and clarity/enunciation.

Two lucky winners will be chosen by Chevrolet. Each winner will win a trip for four to Washington, D.C., to attend the Midsummer Classic and will have a chance to interview players and coaches during MLB’s All-Star Media Day.

Chevrolet is the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball and the Official Automotive Sponsor of the PLAY BALL initiative to support America’s national pastime. PLAY BALL is a collective effort to encourage young people and communities to participate in baseball- or softball-related activities, including formal leagues, events and casual forms of play.

In addition to the initiative, Chevy continues its longstanding investment in youth sports into 2018 with Chevy Youth Baseball. From 2006 to 2017, Chevrolet reached more than 6.7 million kids through its youth baseball programs. The automotive brand has donated more than 136,000 equipment kits to youth baseball initiatives and held more than 1,637 free public clinics in partnership with local Chevrolet dealers.
