How can we post an ad in The West Essex Tribune?

NBC News is looking for boys ages 14-16. We will be video taping boys as they are put through circuit training, team building and competitive activities and interacting with other teenagers. Boys and parents must also be willing to speak on camera about how they think athletics defines social status.
