WNYC and Columbia University offered a six-week radio workshop to a group of Harlem-based teenagers in the summer of 1999. Students aged 12 to 19 learned to report, write and produce radio stories and also how to compose and take pictures at the Photographic Center of Harlem. "The Harlem Radio and Photography Project" was partially funded by the Open Society Institute. Its young participants were given the tools to find and tell the stories most important to them. These stories were awarded both a NY State AP Broadcasters Association and a New York Press Club Award.
