Saline Student Named to Scholastic News Kids Press Corp

. December 29, 2014.

Benjamin Duckworth of Saline is still in his first decade of life, and he’s already being published in a major magazine. Ten-year-old Duckworth has been chosen to be a Kid Reporter for Scholastic’s news and classroom magazine, which offers “news for kids, by kids.” The publication reaches 25 million students nationwide. As a representative from Saline, Duckworth will report on events, news, entertainment, and sports from his hometown. More than two hundred 10-14 year olds in the nation eagerly sought out a spot on this team of young journalists, but only 32 kids from 20 states were accepted. Duckworth is a home-schooled student, and is already making waves with his dreams of becoming a children’s book author, or maybe even a U.S. President.
