Want to Go to the North American International Auto Show? Sign Up to become a Citizen Journalist

January 7th, 2013

Want to know how Ford is making its vehicles greener? How about what future technology is currently in the works? Or what new Ford vehicles will be taking to the roads this year?

Well, now’s your chance to ask!

We’re sending some Ford Social citizen journalists to Ford HQ and behind the scenes at the 2013 North American International Auto Show (Jan. 19 – 26). They’ll be talking to experts and getting their hands on some of the latest technology. Think of them as your line of communication to the bigwigs at Ford—getting an insider point of view that they’ll soon be sharing with everyone at Ford Social. Including you.

Here’s the thing: We want you to choose the assignments! So if there’s anything you’ve been dying to know, something you have a passing interest in, and whatever falls in between—ask away. We’ll be assigning questions from the community to our citizen journalists to investigate while they’re in Detroit and Dearborn.

So maybe you want to know more about how Ford uses sustainable materials in its vehicles? Or about what goes on behind-the-scenes to develop the latest safety features?

Tell us what you want to know—big or small, car or truck, innovation or history. Just post your questions in the comments below! And if you’d like to be a Citizen Journalist too, signup here.
