Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Green Screen Adventures (GSA) is an educational children's television series intended to promote literacy. Utilizing humor as a powerful learning tool, GSA sparks enthusiasm for writing through age-appropriate sketch comedy, original songs, puppetry, and story theatre. By basing the stories on the writing of elementary school students, ages 7-13, children get the message that their words have power, and that their voices are being heard. Since its debut in 2007, GSA has produced 165 half-hour episodes that feature stories written by almost 1,000 elementary school students. GSA provides something that educators can't necessarily offer or replicate in a school setting, as it gives students a real world connection to their writing. Young students have the opportunity to understand the impact of writing on a broader audience by submitting their own writing to the show for consideration and adaptation. Green Screen's company of performers and writers reinforces critical writing skills and emphasizes positive social messages. In addition to academic skills, GSA focuses on the five Cs: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. On June 12, 2009, the station completed the transition to digital television. After that date, the responses to Question 4 apply solely to the station's primary digital program stream. Except as set forth herein, the children's programming and promotional content furnished to the Station during the 4th quarter of 2013 complied with the commercial limits of the Children's Television Act, and 47 C.F.R. 73.670(a)-(d). On October 12, 2013, the closing credits for "Lazytown," an educational and informational program supplied to the NBC Network by Sprout for the "NBC Kids" Saturday morning E/I block, inadvertently included a fleeting (one-half second) display of the URL for the program's web site (www.lazytown.com). We have been informed by NBC that before providing children's programming to its affiliates, the NBC Network takes precautions to avoid any potential violations of the FCC's web site rules. Specifically, each episode of the "NBC Kids" Saturday morning E/I block is reviewed by Sprout, whose policy is to remove all URLs from program materials. In this case, however, the display of the URL in the closing credits was so fleeting it was missed during the review process. The NBC Network is working with Sprout to develop and implement additional procedures to minimize the possibility of a re-occurrence of this isolated incident. In addition to the educational or informational programs listed in this report, the station broadcast the following programs specifically designed for children ages twelve and under that were not "educational or informational" programming: None.

Utilizing humor as a powerful learning tool, GSA sparks enthusiasm for writing through age-appropriate sketch comedy, original songs, puppetry, and story theatre. By basing the stories on the writing of elementary school students, ages 7-13, children get the message that their words have power, and that their voices are being heard. Since its debut in 2007, GSA has produced 165 half-hour episodes that feature stories written by almost 1,000 elementary school students. GSA provides something that educators can't necessarily offer or replicate in a school setting, as it gives students a real world connection to their writing. Young students have the opportunity to understand the impact of writing on a broader audience by submitting their own writing to the show for consideration and adaptation. Green Screen's company of performers and writers reinforces critical writing skills and emphasizes positive social messages. In addition to academic skills, GSA focuses on the five Cs: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion.
