BOLD: Girls Learn About Radio Careers and How to Record Commercials for Girls Inc.
Thank you to Rincon Broadcasting and KIST Radio Bronco and K-LITE for working with our girls to record commercials for our summer program CAMP IGNITE ( see below! )

Girls learned about inflection, annunciation, and how to project their voices, while also getting a sneak peek at the editing process to make a commercial come together with music and sound effects. This was the first time for these girls to be on the radio, and they turned their nervous butterflies about trying something new into empowering action.
