More Microphones = Better Reporting

My students need more wireless lavalier microphones in order to report the news! We have one set being shared by 36 reporters who are constantly competing to use it. These two mic sets would be great!

My Students

My students walk into my classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. They are a diverse group of 12 and 13 year old journalists, videographers and digital story tellers who embrace the new challenges they face with each step of their journey.

In the midst of all that is changing at this time in their lives, my students are an endless source of creativity, energy and dedication as they find and tell amazing stories.

My Project

My 12 and 13-year-old students produce professional news reports for our daily broadcast news show. They plan and conduct interviews, record b-roll, prepare and record reporter intros and outros and edit them all together into stories that inform and entertain. In addition to the cameras and tripods, the most used equipment by my students is the wireless lavalier mic set.

Wireless lavalier microphones are needed to produce professional interviews as well as to record the reporters' stand up segments.

Your generous donations will help my 4 classes of 36 students by having access to another pair of these microphones that are critical to reporters.
