Casting Call - MTV's The Paper

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! MTV is casting for The Paper, a new reality show that delves into the ins and outs of a high school newspaper. Get more info right here so you can apply to be on the show!

The Paper - MTV's Latest Project

The Paper may not sound as exciting as American Idol or Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, but trust us, it will be! MTV crews and cameras want to come into your school to get the inside scoop on your high school newspaper. They want to find out what goes on behind the scenes of the newspaper and follow you around as you search for the latest breaking news and battle it out for who and what goes on the front page. MTV also wants to know about the lives of the newspaper staff outside of school, like who you're crushin' on and who's crushin' on you! Being selected for The Paper could launch your future journalism career... or just put you in the spotlight and send you to Hollywood, much like Laguna Beach did for Kristin Cavallari.

The Paper - Calling All Student Reporters

The Paper is accepting applications via video submission, so here's what you need to do. Make a video of a tour of your newspaper office, a typical staff meeting and sit-down interviews with all the staff members and advisors. The sit-down interview includes questions like what grade you're in, what your responsibilities on the newspaper staff are, why you're interested in the news, what your hobbies are, who you're dating and a whole slew of other questions. Take as much time as you need to answer the questions and be yourself cuz MTV wants to know the real you, not someone who's just putting on a show for the cameras.

The Paper - Video Application Details

When making your video, you'll have to use a miniDV, DVD or VHS. Send your video tape, along with a recent copy of your newspaper, to:

MTV Networks

770 Broadway, #10-58D

New York City, New York 10003

Attn: Claresa Mandola

There's no deadline, but they want your video application ASAP - that means now! If you have any questions, just email the producers

  • Think your high school newspaper staff is newsworthy? Then head to MTV’s official site to submit your video application!

He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.
