The hour-long Nick News: Kids Pick the President special will provide a thorough overview of the basics of voting and give kids a platform to voice their concerns on the issues they care about most in the 2020 presidential election, such as COVID-19, racial equality and the environment. The program will also feature child, adolescent and family psychologist Dr. Jen Harstein and youth activists, including: Zoë Jenkins, founder of a DEI initiative in her Lexington, Ky., high school; and Mari Copeny (‘Little Miss Flint’), who continues to raise awareness about the ongoing water crisis in her hometown of Flint, Mich., and has expanded her efforts to communities across the nation dealing with toxic water.

To further support and help educate kids, Nickelodeon has partnered with: iCivics, the nation's premier civic education provider, founded by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, that reaches over 7.5 million students in all 50 states each year; Encyclopedia Britannica’s LumieLabs, to develop a civics education curriculum and provide their video-creation and storytelling software to elementary students from Title 1 schools in 15 states across the country; the National Association for Media Literacy Education, an organization that aims to make media literacy highly valued and widely practiced as an essential life skill, to help kids sort through all of the election news; and UNICEF Kid Power, to create an election-themed Kid Power Up video kids can play to unlock critical support through UNICEF, such as internet connectivity, therapeutic food packets, family meals, and medical supplies to children in global and local communities.

Nick News: Kids Pick the President will simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons, and be available on Nickelodeon YouTube, Nick On Demand, the Nick App and the Nick Pluto TV channel following the premiere.

Nick News: Kids Pick the President is executive produced by Vice President of News Programming Magalie Laguerre-Wilkinson. Paul J. Medford, Vice President, Unscripted, Current Series, and Luke Wahl, Vice President, Digital Studios also serve as executive producers. Production of the special for Nickelodeon is overseen by Ashley Kaplan, Senior Vice President, Digital Studios.

The Kids Pick the President “Kids’ Vote” is an initiative Nickelodeon has held over the last 36 years and for the last nine presidential election cycles. Beginning with the net’s inaugural “Kids’ Vote” in 1988, kids have correctly chosen the next U.S. president in advance of the national election six out of the last eight times.
