NJ Scoop 4th Grade Program

All Editors Scoop Logo

Welcome to the New Jersey Scoop Research and Writing Program!

Since 2006, over 70,000 students have written articles for their chance to be published in  The NJ Scoop: The Voice of the 4th Grade, a publication comprised writing on topics relating to NJ people, places, history, and happenings.  In this program, students choose one editorial area: Arts & Entertainment, Business, People in the News, Sports & Games, Science & Environment, Travel & Tourism, or Health & Wellness; then a more focused  topic (i.e. John Travolta, Old Barracks, or the NJ Blueberry), and write a 150-250 word article.  The “Best of the Best” are selected by volunteer judges for this keepsake publication.  Teachers may also submit a New Jersey focused class  project.
