13 year old Aiden Zelrick of Lehighton applied to be a student reporter through the Scholastic News Kids Press Corp.

He knew tons of kids from across the country would sign up, but what he didn't know was that he would be one of 45 kids worldwide selected for the program.

Aiden loves to write and now has the opportunity to report on current events, breaking news, entertainment stories, and sports events from his hometown and on a national level.

His stories will be published on the Scholastic website and in Scholastic's classroom magazine, a publication that reaches 25 million students nationwide.

When we asked Aiden where he sees himself in the news business as an adult, he liked the idea of being a weatherman in front of a green screen.
