It’s back to school time and Protect My Public Media is celebrating public media’s contributions to lifelong learning with a photo contest!
You don’t need to be in school to participate. You just need to have learned something from your local public media stations. Maybe you learned your ABCs and 123s on public television’s trusted and effective children’s programming. Possibly you learned how to cook from public media’s hallmark cooking programs. Perhaps you learned about current events happening in your local community or around the globe on public radio or television. We want to know what public media has taught you in your life.
Here’s how you can take part:
1. Download and print one of the postcards below. To download, right-click the postcard, and then select save as. Save the image, and then print it.
2. With a marker, fill in the blank: Public Media Teaches Me_________. Tell us what you’ve learned from public media.
3. Take a picture of yourself with the postcard.
4. Then, click here. Upload your new picture and fill out the required fields. Be sure to state what public media has taught you and why it’s important.
We’re going to pick the most creative entries to feature on our blog, Facebook and Twitter on Friday, September 19, 2014. So you have until Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 11:00 p.m. ET to tell us what you’ve learned from public media.
We hope you’ll join us in honoring public radio and television stations’ work to make us smarter, and teach us and our children new skills every day.
