Media-Smart Youth is an after school program that focuses on building skills in media analysis and media production to help young people ages 11 to 13 understand the complex media world and how this influences their health and decision making in regards to nutrition and physical activity.
This video is our school's Big Production. The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), a part of the National Institutes of Health within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, created Media-Smart Youth to help empower young people to think critically about media and make thoughtful decisions about nutrition and physical activity.
This partnership was made possible by our sponsor WUVI AM 1090 Radio Station. Huge thanks to our VIMSIA Teen Leaders Harsha Ramchand and Ca-Jani Fahie; VIMSIA Staff Scott Williams and Erika Gomez; WUVI Radio Manager Christina Chanes.
