Fantastic opportunity for you educator types. Help spread the word!
Hello producers and teachers of youth radio!I am very excited to present a new and creative producing project from Generation PRX:With help from the Motorola Mobility Foundation, we're launching Bullying Stories: A Community Storytelling Project from GPRX. For the first time, we’re asking youth radio groups to send us pitches for stories on the topic of bullying.In return, we're offering some terrific resources: an audio storytelling kit, training webinars, and possible inclusion in an hour-long special on bullying which will be shared nationally by PRX.Are there bullying stories you've witnessed in your community? Have you created a story about bullying that you'd like to take further? Pitches should address a specific theme and make a concise, compelling case for the story. Please see details here. Send pitches to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight EST on Wednesday, October 26, 2011
All pitches will be reviewed by a panel of youth and adult producers. Selected pitches will receive:– Audio storytelling kit that includes a digital recorder, microphone, and audio editing software (a $500 value)– Training webinars on producing, refining, and distributing stories– Likely inclusion in a youth radio special to be broadcast nationwide via PRXFor all groups, the Bullying Stories Project is an opportunity to develop pitching skills and be part of a national movement of young people speaking up about bullying. As the project progresses, we'll send updates and links on ways to be involved.Please download details here (also available in this blog post). As always, thank you for being part of this important movement!
