Charlie Major, a fourth-grader at Hillsboro Elementary School, had his work featured May 18 on Green Screen Adventures, which was broadcast on Me-TV.

“We applaud students around the country who create and write stories,” said Dan Wall, KAKE vice president and general manager, “and we applaud Green Screen Adventures for bringing these stories to life.”
Green Screen Adventures is a national award-winning children’s television show that selects writing and illustrations by students and brings them to life.
Its mission is to promote literacy, engaging as many children as possible. Since its March 2007 premiere, Green Screen Adventures has featured writings from more than 2,000 students in 350 episodes.
The website greenscreenadventures.tv provides creative, interactive tools for children to write stories and draw pictures on the site and easily submit their work to Green Screen Adventures.
The search engine and filter enable students to explore the site. They can watch videos, see behind-the-scenes photo galleries and read other students’ work.
They can even “high five” stories as a way to compliment and recommend what they like. The website also provides teacher resources and writing prompts.
