Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. SPORTS STARS OF TOMORROW is a weekly "magazine" series that showcases up-and-coming young athletes whose talent and hard work are making them winners. Each episode includes a variety of news features that highlight the featured athletes' success in sports, as well as the hard work that's gotten them that far. Family members and coaches are introduced, too, allowing viewers to get a better idea of the many people involved in each athlete's achievement. Although the show focses on the players' athletic prowess -- and the awards and scholarships they've received because of their talents -- it also presents these young athletes as regular kids, many of whom spend their time volunteering, tutoring children with learning disabilities, and even being elected prom queen.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chicken Soup for the Soul's Hidden Heroes, hosted by Brooke Burke-Charvet, is a hidden camera television show developed for teens in which each episode reveals the widespread goodwill in our world by secretly capturing heroes in action as they demonstrate acts of kindness, compassion and commitment to others. Highlighted by funny, light-hearted moments, the show shines a bright light on everyday people who selflessly share their positive attitudes towards society and life with others by doing good deeds. The show, which includes user-generated content, is based in part on three Chicken Soup for the Soul books created with the Boniuk Foundation: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Be the Best You Can Be; Chicken Soup for the Soul: Create Your Best Future; and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Great Kids. These books were made, with the support of the Boniuk Foundation, from thousands of stories specifically selected to build character, promote kindness, and encourage compassion, especially as a tool against bullying. Each episode of Chicken Soup for the Soul's Hidden Heroes features three hidden camera scenarios that capture everyday heroes in action in a highly entertaining and interactive format.
