    Future journalist? Become one of the 'Jeunes Reporters' of the Tour de France 2012!Since 7 years now, Amaury Sport Organisation allows, together with its sponsors which are different from one year to another, some adolescents to experience the Tour de France as a journalist. Their newspaper, A notre Tour, is handed out to the followers of the Tour every two days.

    The operation is more international than ever before since it now allows not only French people (4 of the 6 Jeunes Reporters) but also a young Belgian journalist and a future journalist from Luxembourg to participate*.

    The Jeunes Reporters du Tour 2012

    The operation Les Jeunes Reporters du Tour is one of the three operations for young fans set up by Amaury Sport Organisation around the Tour de France, next to La P'tite Boucle Nesquik and Les Cadets Juniors.

    This operation allows to children from 14 to 16 years to become a journalist for a month in the Tour de France. Indeed, their mission will be to create, write and produce a newspaper which will be published every two days, with 1,000 copies being printed, and they'll get accreditations like any other real journalist and will be taken care of by two professionals. They'll get access to the press room, to the interview area after the stage, to the Village Départ and they'll be on the roads of the Tour de France. You can hardly do any better to get an unforgettable experience in the Tour de France, while learning all aspects of the journalist job at the same time.

    If you'd like to know more about this operation, please check out the video hereunder:

    Second selection round

    The second round will be one day during which the candidates will perform several tests in the offices of the newspapers: job interview, simulation of interviews and role plays in front of a jury made up of journalists, representatives of A.S.O. and its partners.

    At the end of this day, the jury takes a decision and announces who are the candidate(s) selected after this day: one for Belgium and for Luxembourg and 4 for France.

    The sponsors of the Les Jeunes Reporters du Tour 2012 operation

    Exit Velo101, Nike and several newspapers (Midi Libre, La Dépêche, La Nouvelle République and Ouest France), welcome to Luxembourg!

    Indeed, this year the sponsors of the Les Jeunes Reporters du Tour operation will be:
    - Vision Plus, the official optician of the Tour de France who is the main partner of the operation and who will hand out the prix du plus joli regard sur le Tour 2012 (a prize for the best article in "A notre Tour")
    - the Gouvernement du Grand Duché de Luxembourg which invests lots of money in its communication in the Tour de France nowadays and thus in its relations with ASO ... would that be an attempt to get the Tour to Luxembourg? The slogan of the Luxembourg advertising caravan in the Tour de France 2011 was Prochaine étape, le Luxembourg ! and that was probably not just a coincidence ...
    - the 3 newspapers: L'Equipe, la Dernière Heure (DH) and sportspress.lu, the Association Luxembourgeoise de la Presse Sportive
    Vision Plus Gouvernement du Grand Duché de Luxembourg L'Equipe sportspress.lu La Dernière Heure
