Essay program allows teens to express their views

WUIS’ This I Believe essay program is designed to capture the viewpoints of area high school seniors and give those students an opportunity to share their thoughts with the community.

Ten authors’ essays are being broadcast on WUIS 91.9 FM (89.3 FM in areas west of Jacksonville) over the next two weeks. The essays are scheduled to air Monday-Friday at 7:50 a.m., in the noon hour and at 4:45 p.m.

This is the seventh year WUIS has produced the program with support from the Rotary Springfield-Sunrise. This year’s essays, and past years’ essays, may be streamed at WUIS.org.

The contest was featured by The State Journal-Register on February 19, 2013.
