Student Reporting Labs
PBS News Hour
High school student journalists from local Student Reporting Labs in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia, will participate in the session "PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs: Building the Next Generation of Public Media." This year, the Labs are reporting on Election 2020, climate solvers, adolescent mental health and education. Student stories are distributed through partnerships and aired on local PBS station and the PBS NewsHour nightly broadcasts – reaching a TV audience of more than 2.4 million a night. In this era of misinformation, polarization and distrust, SRL emphasizes collaboration, respect for multiple perspectives, efforts to understand complex forces in society and the search for truth.
