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 email@example.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.
