In honor of back to school, we hosted a Public Media Teaches Me ___ photo contest to highlight public radio and television’s contributions to lifelong learning. Public media supporters snapped their photos with our chalk board inspired or white postcard and shared what they’ve learned from public media.
You blew us away with your submissions! We received tons of creative pictures that showcased public media stations’ important work in educating communities. To view more of the Public Media Teaches Me ___ photos, visit our Facebook album, Twitter feed or check out our new testimonials on our website. Here are some of our favorites:
These adorable sisters posed for their picture at a community event sponsored by their local station, WHUT (Howard University Public Television), which serves Washington, D.C.
Suzie depends on her local public radio station, Capital Public Radio, to give her up-to-date information and safety tips that keep her out of harm’s way, especially during the King Fire that’s blazing through her neck of the woods in Northern California.
Father Tim Lozier stays tuned to his local station WJCT in Jacksonville, FL.
Joyce and her son have watched PBS cooking shows together since he was a child. He went on to culinary school and is now a chef. She’s still learning… from both PBS and her son.
Ellen was a PBS kid and she’s still a big fan of her local station, Maryland Public Television.
Lisa has learned to think beyond the screen thanks to her local public radio and television station, WHYY, which serves Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the Delaware Valley.
After 13 years running a nonprofit that fostered cross-cultural dialogue, Rachael happily accepted a new position as stay-at-home mom last November. Her conversations went from “Tell Me More” to Murray’s “Word on the Street.” NPR keeps her connected to the world beyond her girls. Thanks to public media, her heart ached as she listened to on-the-ground reports from the recent war in Gaza and Israel. She followed the trial of her former governor and explored its impact on national and Virginia politics. And, she got a little more comfortable with her recent diabetes diagnosis after hearing about how Miss Idaho proudly wears her insulin pump on her bikini. Public media enables her to be as conversant in current events with the occasional fellow adult as she is having a discourse about friendly, furry monsters with the preschool set.
Laura sends a shout out to her local station Rocky Mountain PBS in Denver, CO.
General Manager and CEO Monica Cochran of WLJT-DT Public Television, serving West Tennessee, learns about her local community – on the job!
WNET New York Public Media has shown Kenny that you learning really is all around us.
A KPTS (Wichita, KS) employee demonstrates that public media is for visual learners!
Merlina says that WUSF Public Media (Tampa, FL) teaches her son things that are no longer taught in school, like sign language. This makes public media invaluable in her eyes!
We’re suckers for this big yellow bird.
