This month, Bear Essential News is celebrating its 40th year anniversary as a staple resource for Arizona families, educators and kids!
Bear Essential News, in the past years, has partnered with local institutions, and family favorites, like Reid Park Zoo and The Sonoran Desert Museum. This summer, Bear Essential News also partnered with Mildred & Dildred Toy Store and the popular jewelry brand, Kendra Scott Jewelry, both at La Encantada mall, for a fundraiser and fun Saturday!
Bear Essentials News is a newspaper primarily written by kids for kids. Bear Essential News’ Young Reporters Program, previously called the cub reporters -- has had an illustrious history with the likes of former Representative Gabrielle Giffords and former CNN journalist Alexander Rosen as members of the program. Savannah Guthrie, from NBC’s Today, also holds ties to the program -- she helped with the program while she was at KVOA News 4, the local NBC affiliate and a media partner for Bear Essential News.
