Britannica & Nickelodeon Present:

Kids Pick the President

For 32 years, Nickelodeon’s Kids Pick the President program has given students a voice in our elections and democracy. This year, in a new decade of democracy, Nickelodeon has partnered with Britannica to amplify the issues students care about by providing them with the tools and structure to tell their own stories and ask leaders questions.

30 schools will be selected as KPP partner schools, receiving full sponsorship from Nickelodeon to participate.

Sponsorship includes free access to Britannica’s media-making, video-creation platform, LumieLabs, for the 2020/2021 school year, along with pre-built lessons and a team of education experts leading on-site and virtual training.
