Noah McCullough has been called a presidential prodigy. Even though he's only in fifth grade, he plans to run for President of the United States in 2032. While most kids are at summer camp, this 11-year-old whiz kid went on a 10-state tour in 2005 to lobby for social security reform. Having read over 250 books about the commanders-in-chief, Noah impresses with his vast knowledge of presidential trivia. He's had the opportunity to challenge some of the biggest names in politics on presidential trivia—and he usually wins!
Noah says his interest in American presidents began during the 2000 presidential election when he was only 5 years old. "There was a mock election in my school and I wanted to learn more and actually vote for the real reasons, like adults do," says Noah. He wishes more kids were excited about the American government. "I think we need to get kids interested in history to be able to be appreciative of their country," Noah says.
