New York, NY – November 17, 2015 – The award-winning Scholastic News Kids Press Corps™ today welcomed 27 new Kid Reporters, ages 10 to 14, to the country’s oldest and largest student reporting program. The newly-appointed reporters will join eight returning young journalists to report “news for kids, by kids” with coverage of current events, breaking news, entertainment stories, and sports events from their hometowns and on the national stage. The new team of 35 Kid Reporters from 22 states and the District of Columbia will carry out a long-standing tradition of covering the presidential election, reporting on stories from the campaign trail to Election Day, and the inauguration of the next U.S. president.
“Through the stories on our blog, and the reporting in Scholastic News magazine and on Scholastic News Online, Kid Reporters provide a relevant and age-appropriate look at contemporary news for readers just like them,” said Suzanne McCabe, Editor of the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps. “We’re gearing up for an exciting year of news coverage that will offer these young reporters tremendous opportunities to grow as journalists and writers.”
