As editor of the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps, I work with journalists between the ages of 10 and 14 from around the world. They report on stories that kids care about—everything from sporting events and book launches to climate change and technological breakthroughs. You might find them sampling street food in Thailand, visiting a tiger reserve in India, or exploring medieval castles in the Czech Republic.

Our Kid Reporters have interviewed such newsmakers as First Lady Michelle Obama, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and best-selling author Rick Riordan.
