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. During July, WHEC launched the Hash Tag Be Nicer campaign. We asked, not only kids, but adults too, to Be Nicer to each other, especially on social media. During the first week of school some of our News Anchors visited area schools and distributed free Hash Tag Be Nicer bracelets. Every week, we shared Be Nicer stories sent in by our viewers. In conjunction with the bracelets, Hash Tag Be Nicer TShirts were sold with all proceeds benefiting Do The Right Thing. The campaign is an ongoing station initiative. WHEC participates in a project whereby local high school seniors are nominated to be the News10NBC Scholar Athlete of the week. Every Tuesday our sports-team selects a unique senior who not only holds an 85 or higher average academically, but also excels in one or more school athletic programs. The recipient is profiled during the sports segment of our six oclock newscast, September through the first week of May. News Anchor, Brennan Somers, joined more than a thousand Rochestarians, for the 2019 Seneca Park Zoo Jungle Jog. He not only ran the 5K but he emceed too. It is an event for the whole family. In addition to maintaining the zoos exhibits and educational programs, the fundraiser this year benefited the parks work on giraffe conservation. News Anchor, Pat Taney, led WHEC Kid Team for the 2019 Rochester Marathon. This challenge was for young athletes in our community. It kicked off August 18th. Here is how it worked, everyone met and ran a mile together. The kids got supplies that would be needed to participate. Kids used the honor system tracking the miles they ran or walked each week, accumulating up to 4.8 miles. Then on September 21st, the kids participate in the actual Marathon, finishing the final one point two 2 miles and completing a 5K. In addition to our on-air talent, WHEC donated promo time for the race. On August 13th, 2019 a group of WHEC employees headed to the Camp Good Days facilities located on Keuka Lake and interacted with the campers to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Camp. Our team spent the day doing different activities like arts and crafts, swimming, playing cards and board games. They even served lunch to the campers and got to enjoy a bite to eat with them. Touchdown10 is another initiative WHEC does. Fridays effective September 3, 2019 through the middle of October, a portion of our 11PM newscast is dedicated to our local High School athletes. Touchdown10 is an indepth look at the best high school football games in the Rochester area. The News10NBC Sports Team features one matchup as the game of the week and shows highlights and scores from a variety of other games across the viewing area. Non-Broadcast efforts made by WHEC during the quarter were, a station tour given by Program Coordinator, Karen Calarese and Technical Manager, Steve Scheutzow, on July 23, 2019. A seventh grade student from Northstar Academy is interested in the technical side of broadcasting. Steve invited him to come back and shadow some of our crew members for a day. Program Coordinator, Karen Calarese, conducted a station tour for a student from East Ridge High School. She stayed to watch the Noon Show. News Anchor, Brennan Somers, answered some questions. Our guest is an avid lacrosse player and athlete, she is hoping to do sports casting one day. WHEC airs a childrens programming Public Service Announcement that explains the programming educational informational symbol, what it means and how parents can use it. Other Public Service Announcements that aired throughout the quarter and pertained to children and teenagers were, ARC of Monroe and join the Girl Scouts. Details regarding for all of the above, can be found in the NBC and WHEC report under Additional Reports. On Sunday, July 7, 2019, our START TV DT.3 and Heroes and Icons TV DT.5, experienced a satellite failure, 857AM to 914AM. Childrens programming was interrupted. As a result both networks rescheduled the episodes to the following Sunday, July 14, 2019 in alternate time periods. In addition, START TV ran an extra episode of On The Spot.
