Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Green Screen Adventures features stories and drawings by students in second through eighth grade using sketch comedy, story theatre, game shows, original songs, puppetry and more. Since their debut in 2007, they have featured stories written by almost 1,000 elementary school students. The show is set around the submissions of short stories, school reports, poetry, essays, basic academic questions and artwork from students in the Chicago Public Schools and other schools in the Chicago area between second and eighth grades. A parent or guardian then signs a standard release form if the idea is used in the series. An ensemble of actors for the series then takes these submissions, and the program's writers and actors create a short teleplay which is acted out with minimal props, costumes and a chroma key backdrop (the titlular green screen of the series.) The student's story is brought to life by the actors as the green screen becomes the world of the story or subject. The Green Screen also showcases their children's original artwork.
