So how do we improve and recognize the quality screen based media that our kids consume? Well, over 35 years ago Youth Media Alliance was formed to do just that for English and French speaking Canadian children. One way in which they achieve this is by identifying exceptional productions and presenting them with annual awards of excellence. Youth Media Alliance is also involved in research and training to assure that their viewers can depend upon quality content.
On November 17th (Toronto, Canada), I am honored to join Hedda Sharapan, Director of Early Childhood Initiatives at The Fred Rogers Company in delivering the keynote address at the 2011 Children, Youth & Media conference. This two day event will feature leading experts who will discuss programming trends & provide insight into the interests and needs of our youth. Please join us for this important event.
