This team of Kid Reporters will be covering news from ten countries, including the United States, Australia, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, India, Malaysia, Mexico, South Korea, and Thailand. Stories by Scholastic News Kid Reporters are published on the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps website and featured in select issues of Scholastic Classroom Magazines, reaching more than 25 million students in classrooms nationwide.
“Each year, it becomes increasingly evident how passionate students are about engaging in their communities and following the news,” said Suzanne McCabe, Editor of the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps. “This year’s talented team of 45 Kid Reporters have committed to covering the hard-hitting topics that students around the world want to learn more about, while developing the critical thinking and media literacy skills that are so important for their futures.”
The Scholastic News Kids Press Corps has been publishing “news for kids, by kids” since 2000. During the 2017–18 program year, Kid Reporters covered a range of topics and events, including Hurricanes Harvey and Maria; the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C.; Super Bowl LII; and the 2018 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Scholastic News Kid Reporters also interviewed news anchors Anderson Cooper and Katie Couric; New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge; U.S. Olympic medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad; retired NASA astronaut Clayton Anderson; and president and founder of the Children’s Defense Fund Marian Wright Edelman among other notable figures.
