Story ideas for your first story

I know some of you are still struggling to find story ideas for your first out of class story. Remember, just because something is interesting to you as a subject does not make it NEWSWORTHY. And this is a news story — preferably a story based on a news event of some kind.
Here are some links to places you might find story ideas:
MSU calendar of events
Lansing State Journal calendar of events
In just a few minutes perusing those calendars, I found several interesting story ideas, including ones involving October Peace Week (did you know it was Peace Week? Me either!), Breast Cancer Awareness Month (a TON of events throughout October) and a conference on health care at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center. The peace week events range from a Cluster Bomb Survivors Tour to a Wheels of Justice Tour. So if you can’t say why your story is not only going to be interesting but newsworthy, check some of these ideas out.
