After searching for some time to find a news release that was worth reading I came across a press release that was written for an eighth grade boy by the name of Joe Jones. Jones is an eagle scout that was being presented a high ranking in Eagle Scouts for planning and carrying out a project that required 200 hours of his volunteered time.
I like the writing in this release because it is very short and to the point. The only thing that could make it a little more readable is an interesting fact. I don’t feel like the facts listed here are very fun or, for lack of a better word- interesting.
I would also add a quote directly from Jones himself to show a little more ownership of the release (I know Jones didn’t write the release but the quote would help it to feel more personal.) Other than the things I have listed I believe overall this is a very well written news release that was executed effectively.
