Some local students got their first fifteen minutes of fame as they took part in super school news. The news program gives students from four area schools the chance to learn about television production while sharing their school's activities with state wide viewers.
Each fifth or sixth grade team was made up of news anchors and reporters. The students got to write their own scripts and design the visuals for their two minute spot about their school.
Greg Mikolai, production coordinator from Rocky Mountain PBS say that "super school news is a great way for kids on the western slope to see how television works and how putting a news program together works and it gives them a fun enjoyable afternoon to participate in television."
The super school news program has been put on by rocky mountain PBS for the past thirty years and any school can choose to join the program. The shows will be aired this spring six to eight times during a one-week period.
