For our second Manhattan workshop, Radio Rookies partnered with The Door in lower Manhattan, a multi-service youth agency that serves 8,000 teens each year. The Rookies traveled to The Door from different neighborhoods across New York for the opportunity to create radio documentaries. These stories were awarded the New York Festivals Gold Award, the Casey Medal and the Third Coast International Audio Festival's Silver Award for Best Documentary.
