Get paid to become a juror!!

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

Special ongoing incentives are being offered for new jurors.

An educator incentive allows educators to pay $20 for their juror application fee, and still get the full $40 refund after completing training and the first six evaluations. So, educators actually get paid to become active jurors for KIDS FIRST!

Producers who are members of the Coalition for Quality Children’s Media can take advantage of our member incentive. Join the jury and get your next full endorsement for FREE! Producers are eligible for a free endorsement after completing training and their first six evaluations.

Jury training is a bargain for everyone!! Your $40 application fee is ALWAYS fully refundable after you complete training and your first six evaluations.

So what are you waiting for… an invitation! Well here it is…

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO BECOME A TRAINED JUROR AND HELP KIDS BECOME MORE SAVVY MEDIA VIEWERS, HELP FAMILIES MAKE BETTER MEDIA CHOICES AND BUILD UP YOUR OWN OR YOUR FAVORITE CHARITY’S MEDIA LIBRARY!! JOIN US!!

Blog, what’s that?

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

Ok, so I used to love technology. Then I had a baby and in the last five years the world has really changed. Ranny said, “do your blog”, and I suddenly felt inadequate in this new age of internet communications. Email, I know. But, blog!! So here is my first effort.

First, I want to explain what this blog is for. Obviously, I can use it just to blow off steam, but primarily it will be a way for me to communicate with the KIDS FIRST! jurors, help them communicate with one another, and let the world know about what we are doing at KIDS FIRST! I may wish to tie in ideas about how to use media with the children in your life, and other things to do with kids. Oh, and who can resist talking about how great Santa Fe is!

In addition to my thoughts, I want to know what your kids like to do, tips on getting your jurors together, fun film club ideas, what’s the best movie you reviewed this year and other great information about kids, media and life related to these things.

I hope these tips an discussions are always helpful and spark interesting conversations.

Wish me luck!!

At KIDS FIRST! we have lots of trained volunteers across the United States who are teaching kids to become more savvy viewers of media. They evaluate new products, including films, dvds, cds, cd-rom and other computer games. Volunteers build up their media library and their evaluations help other consumers make good choices. If you are concerned about what children see in the media, consider becoming a trained volunteer. Visit my website or email me for more specific information. The application is available online, and so is the training.
