SpaceKids Global competition to become a space journalist

There are many pathways to become a “rocket scientist.” One career out there related to rocket science is a space journalist.

How can you become a space journalist if you are a kid 8 to 12 years old?

If you know a child in the USA, the SpaceKids Global organization has a fantastic competition open RIGHT NOW.

Between now and Thursday, June 13th, 2024 at midnight, click below to start the SpaceKids Global Press Squad Entry Form.

Eight winners will receive a paid trip with a parent or legal guardian to tour the Blue Origin space facility in Florida and receive training as a press reporter. Then they will get to conduct interviews of space engineers, designers, managers, and astronauts of a Blue Origin crew!

If scheduling works, these press club members will get to watch live webcast of a Blue Origin rocket launch!

When I spent 20+ years working in the aerospace industry, I was always eager to encourage kids and students to consider a future career in the aerospace or aviation fields. (Eventually I consolidated the best encouragement and advice I could give into my book How To Be a Rocket Scientist.)

A common theme of this book is that opportunities are abundant today for kids and young people to chart their own course into a unique career in the world of rocket science. If you know any kids ages 8 through 12 who already like to be reporters for things happening in the world around them, encourage them to go to the SpaceKids Global competition to be a 2024 Press Club Member.

The deadline is the end of the day on Thursday June 13th, 2024, so spread the word and get to work!
