My kid is not enrolled in your programs, can they still submit an article?
Due to the number of submissions we receive, we limit the entries to kids enrolled in our program.
Can my kid submit more than one entry?
Sure! But depending on the number of submissions for a given month, additional entries may be rolled over to the next issue.
Can two or more siblings work together on an entry?
Yes, all kids in the family can collaborate on a single entry if they'd like. Credit and Press ID will be given to all of them.
When is the deadline to submit an entry?
The deadline is 23:59 EST on the 15th of every month to submit an entry for the next month's issue. For example, to submit an entry for June's issue of The Kids Ledger, submit anytime between April 16th and May 15th. Submissions received after the deadline will roll over to the following issue.
A new issue is released on the 5th of every month.
Can the parents write for The Kids Ledger?
No, sorry. This magazine belongs to the kids!
Is this a print magazine or a digital magazine?
To keep program costs low, this is a digital magazine only, delivered via electronic format. But you are welcome to print the magazine at home and distribute to family and friends, so they can read your kid's article!
Where can I find the current issue?
The current issue can be downloaded from the Parent Portal.
Why wasn't my kid's article published?
The most common reason is that a parent/guardian did not sign the Release of Information form that would allow us to publish the article along with the child's name. The only information we publish is Name, Age, and Town/State. If you missed the deadline for the current issue, the article will be published in the next issue once the form is signed electronically.
Who owns the copyright to the article?
Your kid retains all rights to the piece they wrote. However, by submitting an article you consent to us publishing it in the magazine along with any necessary edits as deemed required by our editor.
