KID REPORTER TO COVER KIDS WORLD CONFERENCE

 WASHINGTON, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- When Nickelodeon's World Kids Conference convenes in Orlando on Friday, ace reporter Jenessa Benoit will observe the activities, question the participants and dig for the real story. But Jenessa is different from the other reporters who will cover the conference; she is only 11 years old.
 Jenessa will be the official reporter of the conference, which will focus on the environment. Jenessa is working for KIND News, a monthly newspaper published by The National Association for Humane and Environmental Education (NAHEE), youth education division of The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
 KIND News teaches children to be kind to the Earth, animals and each other.
 "I hope that what Jenessa learns and shares with the 600,000 children that read KIND News every month will help them help the environment," said Patty Finch, executive director of NAHEE.
 Jenessa, who lives in East Hampton, Conn., and her teacher, Carol Tracy, will join Finch at the conference. Student and teacher will be the guests of Nickelodeon. Michelle Silverman, another East Hampton Middle School student, will attend as a delegate. NAHEE also is sending teacher Dixie Smith and student Valerie Cody from Phoenix.
 "Jenessa expresses herself very well in writing," said Tracy. "From a teacher's perspective, it will be very exciting to see her work."
 Jenessa has been to Florida once before in second grade but is excited about going again.
 "I hope to learn more about new laws that could help the environment," Jenessa said.
 Jenessa will have a camera, press credentials and plenty of advice from a reporter with The Hartford Courant, her hometown newspaper.
