UEN received a My Source Education Innovation Award from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). The national award is for UEN's NetSafe Utah project which brings Internet safety resources to schools and communities throughout the state.
"NetSafe Utah is a great example of a strong partnership and resources that positively impact Utah communities," said UEN Instructional Services Director Laura Hunter, who accepted the award on behalf of the Utah consortium. Pat Harrison, the president and CEO of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, presented the award to Hunter at the Council of Chief State School Officers/Public Media Executive Summit. The award includes a $3,000 grant to further support the project which has an extensive online component at www.netsafeutah.org.
"Stations across the country are using technology in creative and innovative ways to deliver educational tools and resources that are making a real difference to teachers, parents and children," explained Harrison. "Public media is the definitive education partner for a new generation of learners and CPB congratulates UEN for its outstanding contribution to the state of Utah."
The My Source Education Innovation Awards recognize and showcase how public broadcasting stations such as UEN-TV use pioneering approaches and emerging digital technologies to serve the educational needs of their communities on-air, online and in the classroom.
NetSafe Utah is supported by the Utah State Legislature through a grant from the Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice Services and is a collaboration of many Utah educational and community partners.
