Meet the Next Generation of Public Media Producers

Monday, March 14
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon G
500 E 4th St


If you were given the opportunity to produce news for the PBS NewsHour as a teenager, what stories would you tell? How would your videos be different from news produced by adults? This session is a unique conversation about the future of public media and news with high school students from Student Reporting Labs, a video journalism program in 100 schools around the country. These young producers will explore the intersections of learning, activism, filmmaking, journalism, creativity and current events.
