Launch of Crinkling News - the only national newspaper just for Australian kids!
Today has seen the launch of the Crinkling newspaper!
Megan Mitchell - Australia's National Children's Commissioner at the Australian Human Rights Commission - said Crinkling "gives kids the opportunity to realise their right to a voice."
From the Crinkling website:
Crinkling News is the only national newspaper for young Australians. As parents and veterans of the newspaper industry, we realised one day there was little in the way of child-accessible news outlets in our country. Yet kids are fascinated by the world around them and want to be active in their community.
Crinkling News is aimed at seven- to 14-year-olds, but can challenge and absorb all who turn its pages or click on its stories and pictures online. We encourage subscribers and readers to take ownership of their newspaper by submitting reviews and photographs, writing opinion pieces, and suggesting story ideas.
