On January 28, 2023, 2 troops participated in Democracy & Me’s first Digital Leadership Day. The day began with a Q & A session with Maryanne Zeleznik and Becca Costello from WVXU’s Newsroom, where the girls learned about public radio and careers in journalism.
The girls recorded short podcasts on topics including fast fashion and the environment, COVID safety, social media and mental health, and student led initiatives and activism. Lastly, the girls worked on an activity where they learned to identify credible news sources.
The girls received a tour of the studios and competed in a scavenger hunt where they were able to learn facts about Cincinnati Public Radio and Democracy & Me’s history.
It was a day packed with hands on fun and learning! Be sure to check out their podcasts below!
