Meet the 2017-2018 Kids Press

This week, we introduce you to some of the incredible members of Scholastic News Kids Press Corps! 

Each year, 10- to 14-year-olds from around the world are selected to participate in this award-winning program. These young journalists report news for kids, by kids, covering breaking stories, sports events, entertainment, and more from their hometowns and on the global stage. Since the application process is now open for next year, we asked some of our reporters to tell us about their favorite assignments.

We'll find out what our Kid Reporters have learned from their experiences, which range from covering the Westminster Dog Show in New York City to child labor in India.

Know a kid with a nose for news? The Scholastic News Kids Press Corps is accepting applications through May 31, 2018. Find out more details and apply here!
