Junior Reporter Topic for the final week

With our traditional schools closed for the remainder of the school year, the McPherson News-Ledger has heard there are some Junior Reporters with availability. Here at the News-Ledger, we value education and value people of all ages sharing the news.


We are asking any youngster (K-12) to join us each week in a new writing assignment. We will provide a topic and a few “article suggestions,” but we really want each writer to use their creativity. We will pick some submissions to run in the paper each week and run all of them online. We ask that assignments be submitted by 8 p.m. on Sunday to jessie@mcphersonweeklynews.com.  

This week’s assignment will be due on May10  at 8 p.m. The topic for the week is, Compare virtual school to traditional school. Which do you like better? What are the pros and cons of each?
