Children’s book publisher Scholastic is hoping to get kids excited about the presidential election and has launched a new site dedicated to the event.
The 2016 Presidential Election was created by the editors of Scholastic News magazines. The site includes candidate cards with factsheets on the varying candidates, as well as an election tracker map that will be updated with primary and caucus results. The site will also feature original campaign trail reporting from kids in the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps.
The publisher will add polls to the site where kids can participate in the Scholastic Student Vote mock-election, as the election gets closer.
