To commemorate United Nations Day (October 24th), News-O-Matic, the Daily News Experience for Kids, is writing a major story about the important global organization.

To commemorate United Nations Day, News-O-Matic, the Daily News Experience for Kids, is writing a major story about the important global organization. This won’t be a boring story created from dry research, though. News-O-Matic’s Editor-in-Chief and a group of fourth graders are touring the United Nations headquarters in New York City!

Joining News-O-Matic’s Editor-in-Chief Russell Kahn is the fourth-grade student government of Avenues: The World School. The eight students in the council will receive a private tour of the United Nations, exploring the place where the leaders of 193 member states meet, debate, and work toward world peace. Some will even get to meet Maher Nasser, the Acting Head of the U.N. Department of Public Information.

The experience won’t end there, either. The students will get to participate in the news-making event by writing about their visit. Their reflections about the impact of the United Nations on the global community will then shape the final article published in News-O-Matic — and will be read by a worldwide audience of elementary and middle grade students.

For two years, students at Avenues: The World School have read News-O-Matic to learn what is happening across the planet. Now they will get to make the news themselves!
