Norman Williams Library and The Vermont Standard have teamed up to form Youth Voices.
The idea of Youth Voices is to provide an opportunity for local area youth to have a voice, to be heard by the community through print, video, online text, art and photos. We want to honor youth voices in new ways. We want to affirm and support them as they give witness to their thoughts.
In order to achieve this goal NWL and the Standard would like to work with area school and local parents.
Artwork, Book Reviews, writing/poems (written/video), photography, cartoons, etc.
Content should be submitted to the Vermont Standard via email firstname.lastname@example.org or in a “dropbox” set up with your school.
It also can be dropped off at the Norman Williams Library.
Publication and Public Exposure
The Print Edition of the Vermont Standard:
A monthly page of submitted content from area school will be printed. The page will clearly state that the printed articles, photos, video (image captures) and artwork are part of a collaborative community project by local youths.
The website of the Vermont Standard will host video and photo slideshows, as well written articles/stories that were both published in the paper or those that didn’t make it in due to space constraints.
The Vermont Standard eEdition
The Vermont Standard eEdition is available for any school to use in their classrooms or library for Free. The eEdition is an electronic version of the complete printed paper.
