Faculty and Staff Invited to Participate in NET News Election Project
It’s an election year. The candidates have plenty to say. But NET News wants to hear from you: what issues are important to you, and why; and what questions would you ask the candidates.
“Campaign Connection 2012: Voter Voices” is a unique election year project of NET News (Nebraska Public Television and Radio), in partnership with the Nebraska Library Commission. They are gathering citizen thoughts, perspective and questions on issues at libraries throughout Nebraska, including four Lincoln libraries.
NET News has set up locations for participants to record quick and easy videos, using web cameras and a YouTube channel. Videos can also be recorded independently and sent in for the project. Participants are asked to discuss an issue that matters to you, why it’s important and what helped guide your opinion. You’re also asked to end the video with a question for candidates in the U.S. Senate race. NET will edit and present this content on several platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, the web site for the project (netNebraska.org/votervoices), radio and television.
