Make-A-Wish- Rio De Janeiro Olympics Opportunity
As part of one of our largest wish-granting efforts in our history, Make-A-Wish is sending 44 wish kids and their families to Rio for the Olympics over the course of 19 days (August 4 through August 22). These wish families come from all around the country, representing 26 distinct media markets.

We seek a stellar Barrett Honors broadcast journalism (or related field) student who can assist the Make-A-Wish Communications team with shooting, editing, and distributing video on-the-ground at the Olympics. We are working through details, but this would likely be a contract employee for roughly 23 days (including two full travel days). We would pay for round-trip airfare to Rio from a major U.S. international airport; lodging in a shared condo (with individual rooms) or hotel on the Atlantic Coast in Rio; meals and ground transportation. We would also pay a daily rate.

We are arming each family with a GoPro (or equivalent) to document their time in Rio. We’ll combine that footage with video/interviews we shoot and gather. We are working closely with NBC (both national, O&O, and affiliates) on showcasing these wishes and every few days we plan on sending content to individual NBC affiliates related to the wish kids who hail from their local markets.
