The six Radio Rookies reported stories on everything from surviving Facebook drama to life in the foster care system to coming out as gay in the age of Lady Gaga.
For the 2011 Staten Island broadcast workshop we partnered with the Seamen's Society for Children and Families in St. George, the neighborhood closest to the Ferry Terminal. These stories were awarded the Casey Medal, a New York State AP Award, a Regional Edward R. Murrow Award, an Adobe Aspire Award and an Alfred I. duPont Finalist award.
