Caucus Iowa: Journey to the Presidency
January 25 at 8 p.m. on Channel 6.3 WORLD
Many Americans marvel at how one rural, Midwestern state became the political epicenter and launching pad for the world's most powerful position: President of the United States. Through interviews with presidents, campaign staff, reporters, and Iowans of all political stripes, we explain the twists of fate that vaulted Iowa into the first stop for today's presidential candidates and what experiences those politicians take with them on their way to higher office. We'll also explore what the role of caucus voter means to Iowans bestowed with an enlarged role in choosing the future leader of the free world. Note: this is on channel 6.3 only.

Community
Collaboration Boosts Literacy
Area children will have an opportunity to start and add to their own personal libraries through the collaborative efforts of KMOS-TV and two other University of Central Missouri organizations.

A partnership between KMOS-TV, the university's public broadcasting station; Keen Reading, a literacy action initiative developed by Matt Thomas, professor of reading at UCM; and Enactus, a student entrepreneurial action organization at UCM, resulted in the receipt of a PBS KIDS Local Book Distribution grant.

Thank You to the City of Jefferson!
KMOS-TV had a great time at the Multicultural Fall Festival on October 3. We thank everyone who stopped by to visit, meet Maya and Miguel, engage in our "magnetizing" activities, and learn the benefits of writing at any age as we celebrated one of the PBS Young Writers winners - Karsten, of Versailles. For two years in a row, his winning stories have placed in the national PBS competition, so it seemed only right to celebrate in the state's capital. Making the presentation was city mayor Carrie Tergin, along with PBS characters Maya and Miguel (left, and KMOS Education Coordinator Mary Clevenger (right).
Read all the 2015 stories, including Karsten's story "Who Needs Math?"

Celebrating all the finalists in the 2015 KMOS Young Writers Contest!
Thanks to all who entered this annual contest, we love having the opportunity to read the wonderful stories sent in by all the talented children in our region. Congratulations to our finalists!

The Powerful Effects of Sesame Street
A new paper by Melissa Kearney, an economics professor at the University of Maryland, and Phillip Levine, an economics professor at Wellesley College, finds that kids can learn as much from Sesame Street as a preschool classroom. The most authoritative study ever done on the impact of Sesame Street, finds that one of public TV's most recognizable shows has delivered lasting educational benefits to millions of American children - benefits as powerful as the ones children get from going to preschool.
