Many major print publishers such as Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and National Geographic offer junior versions of their publications. Respectively, these publications present Time for Kids, Sports Illustrated Kids, and National Geographic Kids online and in print.
Some of these junior publications feature articles written by middle school aged journalists. These pieces range in subject matter. While many articles do cover information on professional sports franchises and exceptional college and pro athletes, many feature kid athletes with incredible stories to share. Kids can find recaps of the latest games and tournaments, as well as articles that focus on more social aspects of sports, such as awards shows and fan polling.
Other kids publications such as American Girl Magazine, Boy's Life, and Discovery Girls vary in terms of content, but do feature articles about sports athletes, and games from time to time.
