This Bronx Radio Rookies workshop was in partnership with the Next Generation Center, a fantastic multi-service youth drop-in center run by the Children's Aid Society. The Bronx Rookies worked hard for months to tell their stories about poverty in the Bronx, the standards in public schools, the effects of Chernobyl, incarcerated parents, and a rare debilitating disease. Their stories were awarded the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, the Sigma Delta Chi Award for Public Service in Radio Journalism, a Gracie Award, a National Edward R. Murrow Award were a finalist for an NABJ Award.
