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. WFMZ-TV is very active in its outreach to children in the community beyond its required children's programming. An outline of several projects WFMZ-TV has developed and are on going are listed below. Freddy Awards: The licensee actively works on a major theatre/performing arts scholarship program called the Freddy Awards. This program was developed to encourage students to excellence and seek careers in the performing arts. Over 31 high schools participated in the annual competition culminating in a live three-hour telecast announcing the winners of various competitions in the performing arts. College scholarships are awarded to students. WFMZ-TV has won numerous awards for this program including 2 Mid-Atlantic State Emmy Awards. Kids' News Set: WFMZ-TV has developed a Kids' News Set, which is complete with a replica of the station's news set, teleprompter, camera and lighting. The Kids' News Set was designed to allow kids to see how a newscast is produced and ask questions about broadcasting in general. Youth of all ages can sit at the set, read a prepared script from the teleprompter and is recorded for them to take home. The set has been at a major event during the past year where a significant amount of the general public attended. Internship Program: College students spend a semester in a position that gives them hands on experience in their chosen field of interest. Students generally spend 15 hours per week during the semester working in our newsroom with reporters, photographers, producers, etc. Station management evaluates their performance and provides this information to the student's advisor. Shadowing Program: A program that allows local high school students to travel with reporters and photographers to help students understand the field of television news. These events are set up by a high school teacher or advisor to help students make informed career decisions. Da Vinci Discovery Science Center Outreach: WFMZ-TV has developed an on going educational platform at the Da Vinci Discovery Center for Science in Allentown. The effort includes a multiple interactive kiosk where students and the general public can learn about meteorology and how the forecast and weather presentations are produced at WFMZ-TV. A fully functional chroma key wall allows the public to experience how forecasters present the weather forecast. Homework Help Page: WFMZ-TV has also developed an on-line Homework Help Page on our website for weather related questions. Students have access to basic weather information and explanations. Station Tours: WFMZ-TV conducts regular tours of the station to schools, clubs and community groups. Tours range from 5 to 12 people per tour and are conducted approximately 9 months of the year with an average of 2 tours per month. Tours include all aspects of the broadcast facility and attendee's questions are answered by news department personnel and other station employees.
