The Ministry of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport has an exciting opportunity for a creative, energetic and motivated summer student who is looking to discover everything that makes Saskatchewan great. From special events, to little known gems, to remote locations we want them to see it, experience it and then share it. This is a summer student video and written blogging position. They will be the Saskatchewanderer.
Responsibilities will include developing a calendar of events and proposed travel and then hitting the road to collect video, take pictures, and write stories about the experience.
The idea is to promote Saskatchewan, specifically the four areas that fall within the Government of Saskatchewan′s Ministry of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport. The role of the blogger includes, but is not limited to: choosing locations and events to explore, shooting video, taking pictures, interviewing people, writing stories, encouraging audience participation, populating a blog and a Facebook page with content, focusing that content on the four areas of the ministry (Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport), and showcasing Saskatchewan in a positive light.

Devon Hennig (Vote for Devon)
Hey recruiters, here's me -- Devon Hennig from Swift Current, SK -- in a couple sentences. I'm a month away from graduating great distinction from the U of S with a degree in marketing. Unsurprisingly, marketing complements my endless appetite for social media. I've written travel blogs, edited professional video, and am currently two or three weeks away from completing my honours paper on online video marketing. If I had to list my three favourite things in the whole wide world, they would be cheesecake, theatre, and a good vocabulary. Mostly Cheesecake, though

With my exceptional cinematography/photography skills, mixed with my life-loving personality, I will ignite the Saskatchewan pride in us all! As the captain of TeamCanada for the YukigassenWorldChampionships in Japan I have the leadership, motivation, and drive to make the absolute most of this position! Showcasing our Tourism, Parks, Culture, and Sports I know that I will
