This summer, Kid Reporters in Scholastic Kids Press checked in from across the country and around the world to report “news for kids, by kids.” Focused on the issues that matter most to young people, our Scholastic Kid Reporters have continued to report news from their communities and virtually interview activists, local leaders, and kids throughout the pandemic!
Throughout the summer Kid Reporters in the U.S. virtually interviewed the stars of the Netflix reboot of The Baby-Sitters Club and talked with fellow kids about their e-learning experiences. They also reported about how nonprofits are doing their part to help out healthcare workers, detailed their volunteering experience at a Hawaiian animal shelter, and reported on the latest from the 2020 presidential election.
