The 2008 Radio Rookies Brooklyn broadcast workshop was held in partnership with the High School for Global Citizenship (HSGC) in Crown Heights. The Rookies stories explore topics ranging from why parents work so much, to child abuse, to learning how to read in high school. These stories were honored with the inaugural America's Promise Alliance Journalism Award, an NABJ Award, the Casey Medal and a Regional Edward R. Murrow Award.
