We know there are a bunch of brainy, witty, wonderful kids out there – and we’re betting you know a few too. If you think your child has the smarts to know what a supernova is, they might be just who we’re looking for.

We’re searching for kids between 8 and 13 to take part in a fantastic new Young YOU video project.

They must answer a question every week, which you’ll have to film and send to us, to show us how all-around brilliant they are.


Take a video of your little ones in which they answer two of the following questions:

  • What is a pandemic?
  • Who is Nelson Mandela?
  • How did the coronavirus start?
  • What is the equator?

Please send your video entry to


Siblings can appear in one video together.
