This has been a historic election year, and no one knows this better than the Scholastic News Kid Reporters who have been on the campaign trail from the primaries to Election Day. Yesterday, at Scholastic headquarters in New York City, we invited a panel of Kid Reporters to recap their experiences with the presidential candidates. If you missed the live webcast, you can watch a video of the panel here and see photos here.
Scholastic News Kid Reporters will be working through the night to bring you and your students the latest election updates. Read the Election 2008 blog for their insights into today’s events.
At my local polling place, from students to seniors, from parents to professionals, I think we all felt that we were making history. I felt such a rush of civic pride when I pulled the lever and voted for the President of the United States. I confess I am a lapsed voter; I cast my last ballot in the 2004 Presidential election. But, I made a choice to participate in today’s election.
The kids of America voted last month, and Barack Obama won the Scholastic Presidential Poll. The kids have made their choice, now make yours!
