Kid Nation

40 children, 40 days, no adults —
eager to prove they can build a better world for tomorrow in the new reality series KID NATION.

Settling in Bonanza City, New Mexico, once a thriving mining town but now deserted, these Kids, ages 8 to 15 and from all walks of life, will build their own new world, pioneer-style. They will confront grown-up issues while coping with the classic childhood emotions of homesickness, peer pressure and the urge to break every rule. Episodes end with a town meeting in which the kids award one child a gold star worth $20,000, all leading to the grand finale, with an unimaginable test, the biggest awards and a special surprise for every child.

Tonight was the first episode. We got to discover the kids and they are quite funny! We saw a competition that decided who is who and who does what...

I can't wait to show that reality show to my ''enriched'' students tomorrow.

14-year-old Sophia has been the head-cook, has earned the respect of the town council members and has actually won the first gold star of Kid Nation !
