As a parent I am both thrilled and scared by how much information my children are exposed to in today's world. They are completely tuned into everything that is happening around the world. They might not understand the geopolitical implications or political unrests, but say a name from the newspaper today and they are sure to have at least heard of it. From harmless discussions on the playground to learning about current events in school, to night time news watching with the family, children today receive the latest information from sources all around them. So why not put all that to good use?
Dainik Bhaskar and children's TV channel - ZeeQ are back with their very successful initiative Junior Editor again this year! In its third season, this super fun activity for kids lets them write, edit, illustrate, make ads, and even sketch a daily cartoon for an entire newspaper!

In an effort to make children aware of news and happenings around the country and the world and to build readership among the younger population of the country, Dainik Bhaskar has launched an initiative that puts the onus of newspaper making and essentially content creation right in the hands of children.
How It Works:
Entries for the best newspaper will be chosen from around the country to compete in an exciting set of awards that include 'Best Story', 'Best Reporting', 'Best Editorial', etc. As a national level competition this super creative event has also been added to the Guinness and Limca Book of Records.
