For Kids Under 12: Want to Be An Orioles' Broadcaster: Here's How...

From our Friends at Formula PR:

ESPN Zone and the Baltimore Orioles have teamed up to host the Junior Broadcaster competition, a search for the next generation of sports announcers. Children 12 and under will compete for the opportunity to work in the broadcast booth during an upcoming Orioles game at historic Camden Yards. On July 16 and 17, entrants are invited to ESPN Zone, located at 601 E. Pratt Street on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, where each will have the opportunity to showcase their sports-announcing chops. Two Junior Broadcasters will be selected each day.

“Announcing at an Orioles game is something these young Orioles fans will remember all their lives, and it’s great to be able to offer that to them,” said Christine Baum, ESPN Zone’s manager, marketing and communications. “We expect to get entrants from all over the area and even outside the state, so we’re excited to see what kind of talent emerges as a result of this contest. Judging will not be an easy task.”

The competition will begin at 1 p.m. on Monday, July 16 and Tuesday, July 17. Each entrant will be given a script and asked to watch a monitor and call a play from a recent Orioles game. A panel of judges, as well as the fans on site for the event, will vote to determine the winners.

Entry forms can be submitted beginning today in ESPN Zone’s on-site SportsCenter Studio Store. The competition will be limited to the first 100 eligible entrants. In addition to the grand prize, all entrants will be eligible for prizing, including ESPN Zone game cards and tickets to upcoming Orioles games.
