Kid Scoop News is a publication with a mission:
Our mission at the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner is to get children reading more. Each Kid Scoop News is designed to appeal to students who come from all income levels. The better kids read the better they succeed. Competent readers leads to higher individual achievements in school, and ultimately greater success in life. Each Kid Scoop News issue provides access to engaging stories, STEM, and economics and children love the fun games and creative puzzles that are sprinkled throughout the 24 pages.
Each new issue of Kid Scoop News publishes on the last Sunday of every month in the Daily News-Miner. Local businesses, community members and organizations who value literacy in our youth, can become a sponsor of Kid Scoop News. Their gift of sponsorship will help to reduce the cost of the subscription fees, printing and delivery expenses.
