New! Youth Media Literacy Grant
HumanitiesDC is proud to offer a new grant partnership opportunity. The Youth Media Literacy Grant is for organizations to develop media literacy curricula that can be used for either an in-school or out-of-school time program for students ages 12 to 18. Applicants are encouraged to develop programs that use interactive learning models that go beyond the classroom. Potential projects could include political cartooning workshops, field trips to working newsrooms, photojournalism investigations, or the creation of a student produced media literacy guide for their peers. Media literacy builds an understanding of the role of media in society as well as essential skills of inquiry and self-expression necessary for citizens of a democracy.
