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. KMPH-CD continued to the serve the educational, informational, and social needs of children throughout the 3rd Quarter 2015 through extensive broadcast and outreach activities. The station has continued to air PSAs for local and national organizations serving the interests of children and families, including "Think It Up with Ambassador Nick Jonas," which empowers students to harness their passions and apply what they are learning to address real world problems, generate new ideas and make a difference; The National Association of Broadcasters and Congressman Jim Costa creating awareness on the importance of reading; And, the Arbor Day Foundation's "It's Your Nature, , Explore," encouraging families to go outside and experience a positive connection with nature. We also have presented stories in our newscasts highlighting children's issues, such as the impact of the valley's bad air requiring some schools to limit outdoor activity for students, ending recess, PE, and outside lunch time. Other stories highlight research that has shown children exposed to insecticides at home may have a higher risk of developing serious diseases, a new study finds student in early elementary school are getting too much homework, and that an increased vocabulary at the age of 2 leads to fewer behavioral problems for children. The station continues to provide tours of our facility to local schools to show where and how the news is produced, and to answer questions on what skills are needed to work in the industry, including education. The station's on-air talent maintains an extensive schedule with community groups and schools. Dozens of visits were made to schools to read to students, helping them develop a love of reading and continuing education, teaching them about weather and the environment, sports and health, and to answer questions about television, world events, and issues that impact children. Video of the students and teachers of the schools visited are featured during our 5 hour morning news and entertainment program, Great Day. These videos are included in Kopi's Ten Day Forecast, Great Day Faces, and the 7th Inning Stretch segments. These videos and their accompanying stories are also featured on our website. Our news personalities are all active in the community, including one of who serves on the board of the Northern California Chapter of the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences, serving in the Mentoring and Scholarship programs. Our station is active on social media, where we frequently field questions from children, and take the opportunity to encourage them to continue their education, act in a socially responsible manner, and become good stewards of the planet on which they live.
