We’re looking for writers!

Like the L-Zone? Interested in science, climate and satellites? Fancy a future in the blogosphere?

This is the opportunity for you to show off your skills!

We’re looking for young writers between 8 – 16 years old willing to write stories about our satellites and how they monitor the Earth.

The topics can be related to our 5 L-Zone science sections: spacecraft, weather, atmosphere, oceans and climate. Check them out for inspiration.

You can write an informative article or a sci-fi story. Even a tutorial related to the above topics, such as a weather science experiment report.

You can accompany your story with personal touches such as drawings or comic strips and you can also work on a story with friends.

What we need

Word count: minimum 500
Format: word document for text files and pdf/jpeg for images
Parents authorisation: please send us an authorisation from your parents for us to publish your story and your name
Picture: please send us a picture of yourself or your team to include in the story


The motto is get creative and have fun with it: the sky is the limit.

Just send the story together with a brief introduction on yourself/your team to L-zone@eumetsat.int

We will review it and feature it on the L-Zone and show it on the EUMETSAT Facebook page.

In March we will select the best story and award the winner with a kindle E-Reader.
