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. This summer, we completed our 25th season of book breaks, with staffers reading to primarily pre-school and elementary aged children at 17 area libraries, in an effort to encourage love of reading and to help keep up reading skills over school vacation. On-air, in September we resumed our weekly 'CNY Central Athlete' within our evening newscasts, featuring high school sports stars who are also academic standouts. Off-air,we are also committed to age-appropriate interactions that encourage skills to help sutdents get job ready, including reading, math and understanding technology and the social and academic steps in the career planning process. We also discuss social media and the possible negative consequences of personal picture posting, in school and job applications. We welcome grade-school aged groups to station tours that emphasize workplace applications of school-taught skills, and we attend career choice fairs for middle and high schoolers, who are encouraged to job shadow. We also provide internships for college-level students in several areas of our stations' operations.
