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. NBC3 is committed to age-appropriate experiences and enrichment for Central New York children. Toys for Tots is our major 4th quarter event: our broadcast center is a community dropoff point for toys, and the week before Christmas we stage a dropoff drive-thru night at the , offering hot chocolate & cookies as we collect toys from groups and business partners. We feel it's a teaching experience on lifetime giving for the many school groups that also participate: among them, the Syracuse Academy of Science, whose students did toy drives and then helped with our drive thru. Northminster Learning Center did its 3rd annual Toys for Tots Change Drive, collecting hundreds of dollars which they used to buy toys, and the children also helped pass out cookies at our drive-thru. Several other school groups also collected toys. We also profiled a 10 year old who donated her birthday presents and received a commendation from the Marines. On-air, our sports department produces 'High School Athlete of the Week' during the school year, profiling a student who excels academically and with community commitment, as well as in his or her sport. We also have ongoing efforts: We do station tours for youth groups, job shadows for high schoolers and internships for college students, aimed at helping young people understand our business and focus on preparing for careers, not only with the technical skills, but also with good work habits and workplace readiness. Staffers are involved in coaching, sit on boards that work for the welfare and betterment of young people, and volunteer time for career days and guest reading at area schools and youth organizations.
