We made it! Thanks to your generous support, we’ll be bringing youth media back to West Texas for a second year of the KRTS Youth Media Project.
Over 80 donors contributed a total of $7,876 to our Kickstarter campaign, exceeding our goal by more than $700. Some of those funds will go to this year’s student producers, who will pitch, write and produce their own radio stories at the KRTS studios over the next 8 weeks. The students will present their work to the community at a Listening Party at the Marfa Book Company in early May.
The project begins next week. We can’t wait to find out what kinds of stories the next generation of public radio producers and reporters are interested in telling. Stay tuned!
