Media captionThe Pitch – tell us your story ideas

What story do you think the BBC should be reporting on and sharing with our audience?

'The Pitch' is a chance for young people aged 11-18 to suggest an idea for a story or report to BBC News - if you've got a great idea programmes like Radio 1's Newsbeat, CBBC Newsround and the Victoria Derbyshire Programme might come and make it with you and put it on the television, radio, online or social media.

Perhaps you've got an idea for a personal story - about you or a friend or member of your family?

Maybe there's something unique happening in your community that you think more people should know about?

Or is there an issue you are passionate about that you would like the BBC to share with a wider audience?

You can send us an outline of your story in either words, or short video, audio or pictures using our our online uploader.
