IndyKids Kid Reporter Program Workshop

Want to become an IndyKids reporter and have your work read by people all over the country?

In the Kid Reporter Program workshops, students are guided on an in-depth exploration of media literacy and learn how to become critical journalists. Working one-on-one with professional journalists, editors, writers, and educators, students take part in every aspect of producing the IndyKids newspaper – from topic selection, researching and writing, content production, interviewing, on-the-ground reporting, editing and finalizing their work for publication, and finally, distributing the paper to a growing, national audience of their peers.


Our next Kid Reporter Workshop will be on Saturdays, January 21, 28, and February 4th, from 9:30am-12:30pm ET. This class will be 100% virtual.

“I wish IndyKids could be in every community, it’s such a valuable resource! My child has developed critical thinking, writing, listening, public speaking skills, and more as a member of the IndyKids reporting team for almost three years. Indykids has helped reinforce the idea that “the news” is not something abstract- -it is for us by us; meant to be a part of our daily lives.”
