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. Effective the week of September 26, 2010, NBC and its affiliates launched the "Education Nation" campaign. It is a nationally broadcast, in-depth conversation that seeks to engage the public, through thoughtful dialogue, in pursuit of the shared goal of providing every American with an opportunity to pursue the best education in the world, especially our children. During an interactive summit on Rockefeller Plaza, parents, teachers, and students come together with leaders in politics, business, and technology to discuss the challenges and opportunities in education today. In addition, NBC turned Rockefeller Plaza into a "Learning Plaza," open to the public, which allowed visitors to explore America's educational "ecosystem." WHEC-TV also 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 a B+ (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 o'clock newscast, September through the first week of June. WHEC-TV airs a Kids Programming PSA that explains the programming educational/informational symbol; what it means and how parents can use it. This :30 second PSA aired as follows: 10/3/12, 12:42PM; 10/6/12, 10:27AM; 10/8/12, 2:23PM; 10/10/12, 12:55PM; 10/10/12, 3:32PM; 10/13/12, 9:57AM; 10/13/12, 11:57AM; 10/19/12, 2:28PM; 10/20/12, 9:57AM; 10/21/12, 7:18AM; 10/24/12, 12:29PM; 10/27/12, 9:57AM; 11/1/12, 2:46PM; 11/3/12, 10:57AM; 11/9/12, 12:22PM; 11/10/12, 10:58AM; 11/15/12, 2:20PM; 11/17/12, 10:27AM; 11/20/12, 12:54PM; 11/24/12, 9:26AM; 11/24/12, 10:27AM; 11/24/12, 11:27AM; 11/24/12, 12:23PM; 11/25/12, 12:15PM; 11/26/12, 11:59AM; 12/1/12, 10:27AM; 12/3/12, 2:58PM; 12/8/12, 10:57AM; 12/12/12, 2:54PM; 12/15/12, 11:14AM; 12/18/12, 2:16PM; 12/22/12, 9:58AM; 12/22/12, 11:57AM; 12/22/12, 12:09PM; 12/23/12, 1:30PM; 12/26/12, 2:49PM; 12/29/12, 9:57AM; 12/31/12, 12:40PM.
