10-year-old Honolulu boy chosen as Kid Reporter for Scholastic News Kids Press Corps

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu native Julian Ibarra, 10, was chosen to represent Hawaii along with 31 other young aspiring journalists in the award-winning Scholastic News Kids Press Corps.

32 new Kid Reporters, ages 10 to 14, were welcomed to the country's oldest and largest student reporting program. The young journalists will report “news for kids, by kids” with coverage of current events, breaking news, entertainment stories, and sports events from their hometowns and on the national stage.

The 32 Kid Reporters hail from 20 states across the United States, with international correspondents in Puerto Rico, the Philippines, and Thailand.

The new reporters were chosen by the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps editors from more than 200 student applications, which required students to submit a news report about their local community, ideas for future stories, and a personal essay explaining why they would like to be a Kid Reporter.
