My Day on the Campaign Trail
Scholastic Student Reporter
I noticed that working with important people was a lot more fun than I had expected. I got to ask Senator Joseph Lieberman a question at one of his many campaign events in New Hampshire. My group covered two different events. Senator Lieberman talked to us at each event and treated us with respect.
It was very cool to have this experience, and it was really exciting asking people questions and being noticed.
I learned that adults aren't the only people who are allowed to have spoken opinions. As kids, we are allowed to share our thoughts and to question the opinions and actions of others.
Working with Scholastic News Online and NBC News has helped me learn more about the presidential candidates, even a lot more than I would have by just watching them and hearing from them at school or at home.
I am very glad that I worked with this program, and that I was given such a great opportunity to do so.
