Our premier issue of Official Kids Mag – our children’s magazine for Central and Northwest Arkansas – is finally here.

Official Kids Mag and OfficialKidsMag.com are filled with stories, photos and activities for kids. The best part, it’s written and photographed by “kids at heart.”

Official Kids Mag is specially designed for kids in kindergarten through the sixth grade.  The glossy, perfect bound magazine is full of local kid hero profiles, features, events, recipes, games, puzzles, coloring and activity pages, and educational stories written just for kids.

With six themed editions set for 2018, Official Kids Mag and OfficialKidsMag.com will be a hit with kids, parents and teachers, but mainly kids!

In every edition we will tell the amazing story of a kid making a difference in our world. In this first edition we feature five “Kid Heroes” who make a difference in the Northwest Arkansas community every day.

I want to take a moment to thank our teachers and parents for their efforts with kids in our area.  I am amazed by some on the stories we have been working on for this and upcoming issues.

I should mention the time and effort put into Official Kids Mag by our advertising and creative staff.

Many staff members worked on this fun project. Brian Huntley, our chief designer, and Dave Woods, our magazine coordinator and writer, have worked tirelessly to make sure this is a fantastic magazine filled with great images, awesome design and amazing stories.

I’d love to hear from kids, parents and sponsors on topics you would like to see in upcoming issues. Email me at bpowers@officialkidsmag.com

Thanks to our sponsors, Official Kids Mag can be offered as both an educational resource and a fun guide for kids. Pick up a copy at more than 125 rack locations, in your school, or email us to request a future copy.
