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. For the 26th year we are running a summer reading program in partnership with the Onondaga County Public Library system, with on-air staffers visiting libraries to encourage school-aged children to keep reading, to stop loss of knowledge while they're out of the classroom. In May, the Friends of the Central Library gave their highest honor, the Muriel Koretz Award, to Community Relations Director Laura Hand for coordinating the programs. As part of the award, childrens' books were donated in her name to area libraries. Our 'Athlete of the Week' series continued until the end of May, highlighting a high school sports star who is also an academic standout. And, all staffers are involved in age-appropriate interactions that encourage skills to help students get job-ready, promoting reading, math and understanding technology, as well as the academic steps in the the career planning process. Younger school groups are welcomed for station tours, and staffers do in-school appearances to read or speak about their jobs. At the middle- and high school levels, we attend career choice fairs and encourage job shadows. At the college level, we provide internships in several areas of station operations, for college credit. At all levels we discuss social media and the possible negative consequences on school and career plans, of personal picture posting. Several staffers are also involved in organizations that encourage healthy life-choices.
