If you have questions about purchasing For the Kid in You through Missouri Press, contact Kristie Williams at 573-449-4167.

For the Kid in You is created by Carolyn Estes and Faith Wylie at the Oologah (Oklahoma) Lake Leader. The Lake Leader is a community newspaper in Northwest Oklahoma that has for years been a model in how a small weekly can support a successful Newspaper in Education program. Since 1994, the Lake Leader has been creating For the Kid in You.

Shortly after the Kid was born, the newspaper began self-syndicating to other community newspapers. 

Thanks to a special partnership, newspapers can purchase archived For the Kid in You features though the Missouri Press Foundation. If your newspaper would like to publish For the Kid in You each week, contact Estes at 918-443-24-28 or carolyn.estes@sbcglobal. Visit www.KidInYou.net for more information.
