The interview session will last for an hour and then the students will have two hours to write a feature story from the interview.

The club has up to $2,000 to award to the winners.

The entries will be judged by local journalists, and the winners will be announced prior to the club's anniversary dinner on April 12 at the Rivers Club, Pittsburgh. The students must be Western Pennsylvania residents or attend Western Pennsylvania colleges and universities.

The contest is not limited to female students.
