Bolstered by Knight's investment, Scoop44 is creating a new nonprofit news bureau and online model run entirely by young journalists. The grant will enable the operation to staff correspondents and editors in order to increase the quality and quantity of news stories focusing on the next generation and drive interactive exchange between the new administration and young people.



Expanding a network of student journalists stationed in Washington, D.C. and nationwide, Scoop44's editorial team, staffed correspondents and contributors will deliver nonpartisan coverage through multiple? mediums and platforms, such as feature-length articles, blog posts, multimedia reports, podcasts, email alerts and live online chats.
