Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Utilizing humor as a powerful learning tool, "Green Screen Adventures" (GSA) sparks enthusiasm for writing through age-appropriate sketch comedy, original songs, puppetry and story theatre. By basing the stories on the writing of elementary school students, ages 7-13, children get the message that their words have power, and that their voices are being heard. GSA provides something that educators can't necessarily offer or replicate in a school setting, as it gives students a real world connection to their writing. Young students have the opportunity to understand the impact of writing on a broader audience by submitting their own writing to the show for consideration and adaptation. Green Screen's company of performers and writers reinforces critical writing skills and emphasizes positive social messages. In addition to academic skills, GSA focuses on the five C's: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion. This program aired on the station's digital subchannel 18.4.
