Scholastic News Kids Press Corps Application
With the 2016 presidential race in full swing, the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps is now accepting applications for the 2016–2017 school year.
Our student journalists, ages 10–14, cover breaking news, political events, entertainment, and sports from their hometowns and on the national stage. Their stories are published online at www.scholastic.com/kidspress and in Scholastic Magazines.
To apply, students must submit a news story about a person or an organization making a difference in their community, ideas for future stories, and a personal essay explaining why they would like to be a Kid Reporter. The application can be downloaded here.
