Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The "Ariel, Zoey and Eli Too" series is a children's informational show, hosted by three siblings, twin girls, Ariel and Zoey, and their younger brother Eli. As hosts, these children entertain and inform their audience through song, dance, music and dialogue. Boys and girls between the ages of 13-16 years of age will be interested in watching each episode to learn something new and pertinent to adolescent life, including following dreams and setting goals. In one episode, the young hosts interview the CEO of Domino's Pizza as well as a federal court judge. The questions asked during these interviews are insightful and inform adolescents about educational choices when thinking of future careers. The importance of volunteering is discussed in a way that will inspire teenagers to make positive choices in giving back to their communities. Judge Damon Jerome Keith points out that listening to and respecting your parents, staying in school, remaining positive and finding out what makes you happy are all imperative in building a successful life. Additionally, patriotism is depicted through songs of our Armed Services. Character education is an integral part of academic education, as well as family life. This show supports and encourages respect for others, having integrity, following directions, putting forth best effort and taking responsibility, which is a wonderful message for American youth. Ariel, Zoey and Eli Too is an upbeat, fun, divers and entertaining children's series that will inform young people on a variety of subjects, while keeping their interest. Although it is a show that young people will be drawn to on their own, parents can watch it with their children and use it as a discussion platform for many important subjects.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The "Travelling Trio" is an adventure-filled educational series presented by three siblings who traverse the globe while exploring, learning and teaching viewers about our amazing world and all it has to offer. EDUCATIONAL/INFORMATIONAL OBJECTIVE: The Travelling Trio provides CORE programming in the areas of geography, history, foreign language, social studies and cultural awareness. The show meets these objectives by presenting the location of the country with animated maps to show the current flag and surrounding countries; showing the hosts as they visit foreign countries; teaching about the culture and history of each location; making contact with local children and adults in each location; presenting foreign language as an obtainable skill through simple language lessons that are delivered by the hosts with the help of several children from the featured country and showing that children around the world are just like the hosts and viewers. All children play, learn and make friends due to their natural propensity to be inquisitive; peer mentoring--youthful interaction makes kids feel more comfortable and allows the learning process to have a greater impact. In each episode, Olivia, Ingram and Everett begin with a geography lesson that includes the location of the destination, the flag, the language and the bordering countries. Basic historical facts are presented in a clear, easy-to understand manner as the hosts move from location to location. In every episode, the hosts interact with each other as well as merchants and children from the destination country. Olivia, Ingram and Everett also conduct interviews with children and adults who are working for positive social change in their community (whenever possible), especially in regard to education and child welfare. In concluding the episodes, the hosts, with the help of some of their new friends, present a simple language lesson that teaches common phrases from the destination. This rudimentary tutorial is intended to spark an interest in foreign language by presenting it as an obtainable skill.
