The Crow is looking for a young person who can quiz members of Herts County Council.

The idea is for youngsters to take part in a wide-ranging web-based press conference with Cllr David Beatty, the leader of the county council, and other members of the Cabinet.

The county council sees the event as giving youngsters a voice during Local Democracy Week, which runs from October 9-20.

"This year Local Democracy Week has the aim of engaging young people in the democratic process and giving them a means to voice their opinions on issues in a constructive way," said Cllr Beatty.

The role The Crow will be playing is to select one youngster who will take part in the press conference.

This will be done by sending us a question about a local issue and then we will select the youngster to take part in the event on October 9 when a link will be put in place between The Crow and County Hall.
