Last week, POPPYN and the University Community Collaborative of Philadelphia (UCCP) at Temple were honored with the second annual PhillyCAM IMPACT Award from Philadelphia Community Access Media. The award acknowledges the exceptional work of members who create programs that inspire Philadelphians to improve the quality of their communities.
POPPYN is a youth-produced news show that presents perspectives and contributions of youth often missing from the mainstream media. The show’s student producers hail from Temple, local high schools and the Community College of Philadelphia. Launched in 2010 as an extension of UCCP, POPPYN seeks to include youth in the conversations about issues that affect them. POPPYN airs every Thursday at 4:30 p.m. on PhillyCAM - Verizon 29/Comcast 66. Learn more on POPPYN's blog.
