Standing O welcomes Amelia Poor, a sixth grader at MS 51 in Park Slope, to the world of journalism. The savvy Cobble Hill tween has joined the 2017–2018 Scholastic News Kids Press Corps, a group of talented young journalists, ages 10–14, from across the world.

Amelia will be reporting “news for kids, by kids” throughout the year with coverage of current events, breaking news, entertainment stories, and sporting events from her hometown and on the national stage.

“We were extremely impressed with the quality of the applications this year and are delighted to welcome these 44 young journalists to the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps,” said Suzanne McCabe, editor of the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps.
