Teenagers from Sheffield will be reporting on Sheffield Children's Festival and other news throughout July 2007.

The students are from Firth Park, Handsworth Grange, Myers Grove and Newfield schools in Sheffield and have been working with a BBC journalist since January 2007.

This full time news blog is their work experience.

Emma's mom says:

Just wanted to say to Emma, I'm so proud of you, the way to take these opportunities that come your way. to expand your knowledge and the way you appreciate lifes offerings. Even when things seem tough you just get on with things and to see this small snippet of your week's experience at the Making Connections/BBC South Yorkshire is brilliant!! It was worth getting up at 5.30 every morning this week to see this. As for why your head has been singled out, well i am biased, but i'm glad yours has. Love you Mom
