Celebrate Media Literacy Week with KQED’s Youth Media Challenge! Join KQED for an online screening of our latest mini-series “Stepping Up” which features the stories of youth activists and what inspires them to make change. “Stepping Up” is the basis of our Youth Media Challenge, an opportunity for students ages 13-18 to submit stories of times they were inspired to make change. The screening provides an introduction to the series and includes a panel of youth activists and educators who explain how to participate in the challenge.

What is Media Literacy Week?

NAMLE, The National Association for Media Literacy Education, is hosting its third annual Media Literacy Week, a collection of events and resources to showcase the work of media literacy educators and highlight the importance of media literacy in education.

What is Media Literacy?

Media literacy can be defined as the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, create, and act using all forms of communication. Today, we receive more information via more mediums than ever before. Being able to understand, evaluate, and create all forms of media is imperative to being a successful student, responsible citizen, and productive worker.
