Earth & Sky

You may have heard the Earth & Sky programs on your radio: 2-minute interludes that focus on earth science and astronomy. The brief commentaries, aired over public and commercial stations, often provide an unexpected and welcome glimpse of the natural world in the midst of Top Forty music and dateline news. Earth & Sky sponsors a "Young Producers" contest that encourages students, grades 112, to produce their own 2-minute radio spots. Students research a question, write a script, and submit it on audiotape. The winning programs are played on Earth & Sky, which is broadcast all over the world via the Armed Forces Radio Network, as well as more than 500 stations in the US. The deadline for submission is May 15, 1995.
