Teens: Want to be ArtsAlive film critic?

ArtsAlive is bringing back the Observer's Teen Screens program, and we're looking for film critics.

Critics will review movies in rotation through the year for ArtsAlive. You have to be a high school student with a computer (we take reviews only by email), a source of transportation and a willingness to see all movies rated G, PG or PG-13. We may sometimes ask you to see R-rated films if you're 17 or older. (If you're not 17, you won't be allowed to review those.)

We'll pay $35 per review, and you'll buy the movie tickets.

To apply, write a sample review of a 2011 release. The review should be 400 to 500 words; if it's a lot shorter or longer, you're out.

Underneath that, write a brief autobiography, telling us why you want the job and think you might be good at it.

Put these together in the body of one email - no attachments - and send it to living@charlotteobserver.com with "Teen Screens" in the subject line.

Include your name, address, phone number, grade and the name of your high school. Only winners will be notified.
