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.
