A program that allows kids 10-14 to work as journalists bringing news of their communities to other peers. News that is by kids, for kids.
WHAT'S TO LOVE
What a great opportunity for kids who love to write, research and report to do the work a real journalist does. I love that it is not canned, there are no multiple choice questions, kids report on what interest them and what they think would interest other peers. By having 50 kids around the country reporting, there is a sense of collaboration and authenticity that is real world and great fun.
Applications are due late September annually.
