Sharpen your crayons And get your imagination in gear, because Prairie Public is hosting the PBS Kids Go! Writers Contest to promote reading and writing skills through hands-on, active learning. Children in grades K-3 can submit their own original stories. Visit prairiepublic.org to find the contest rules and entry forms. There you’ll also find a writer’s guide that discusses brainstorming, plots, setting character development, word choices, and more! The deadline for submissions is March 24. We will award “First Place” and “Red Ribbon Favorite” prizes to children in each grade level, and every child who submits a story will receive a certificate of participation and personal, positive feedback from our story evaluators. There is no national contest this year due to the lack of a national sponsor. Maybe next year!

Inside Energy: bringing energy reporting down to earth
Prairie Public’s multimedia journalism collaboration continues to report on the region’s energy boom and the national, regional, and local significance of energy issues.
Saturday February 18 Historic Fargo Theatre in downtown Fargo, ND
Good audio quality is important, even when on the road. Sometimes that requires innovation, such as fashioning a studio of pillows and blankets in your hotel room! Our Inside Energy reporter, Amy Sisk, continues to chase the story of the Dakota Access Pipeline. At insideenergy.org, she describes her journey gaining access to demonstrators and public officials, navigating blizzards, and sharing North Dakota’s story with an international audience.
Stay tuned in upcoming months for two Inside Energy television documentaries. Nuclear Waste examines the challenges facing the nuclear power industry, especially with regard to waste disposal. Standing Rock: Oil, Water And Tribal Conflict (working title) shines a spotlight on the conflict surrounding the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Prairie Public is a proud media sponsor of the Celebration of Women and their Music, a not-forprofit event that supports emerging and established artists. Tune your radio (or listen online!) to our KFJM program signal the week of February 13 as our own Mike Olson plays music by artists who are scheduled to appear at the 20th Annual Celebration of Women & Their Music: Peggy Bartunek (Grafton, ND) Chastity Brown (Minneapolis, MN) Renia del Cid (Minneapolis, MN) Hannah Christianson (Boston, 2008 award winner) Nicole Craft (Los Angeles, 2010 award winner) Deb Jenkins (Fargo, ND) Kris Kitko (Bismarck, ND) Izzy Marcil (Boston, 2013 award winner) Diane Miller (Moorhead, MN) Sarah Morrau (Fargo, ND) Claudia Schmidt (Minneapolis, MN) Nita Velo (Sabin, MN)
Prairie Public’s Inside Energy project has established a ‘Listening Post’ to gather voices that can provide more perspective to stories about the energy industry. The ‘Listening Post’ will help our reporting staff to tap on-the-ground networks and more effectively gather and share important information. The result? Great reporting, more partnerships, and a database of insights. Join the conversation! To begin, text ‘energy’ to 701-354-4414.
LISTENING POST Stay connected with your elected officials ND Legislative Review will air throughout the session, on radio Fridays at 6:30 pm and on television Fridays at 8 pm CT.
Where’s the Radio Schedule? Find Prairie Public’s radio broadcast schedules for your area online at www.prairiepublic.org/radio, or call 800-359-6900 and we’ll be happy to send a printed copy.
February Television Highlights Crafted: A Romance with Beer, produced, written, and edited by broadcast documentary students at Minnesota State University Moorhead, is the story of the making of a product, the people who use it, and the pints they drink.

Tuesday, February 28, 7 pm CT For the better part of a millennium, Windsor Castle has been at the heart of British history. But it’s also a beloved home to the royal family and more than 400 people who live and work there. Chronicling a year in the life of the world’s largest inhabited castle, The Queen’s Castle, a 3-hour documentary, is a fascinating insider’s look at this grand landmark. New! Sunday, February 26, 8pm CT Journey through the prolific life of the “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” author and activist who inspired generations with lyrical modern African-American thought. Maya Angelou: American Masters features new interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Common, the Clintons and others. New! Tuesday, February 21, 7 pm CT
February Television Highlights Doc Martin star Martin Clunes travels the world to explore the relationships between humans and animals in Man & Beast with Martin Clunes.

New!

Before the occupation of the refuge in Oregon, before the siege at Waco, before Oklahoma City, there was Ruby Ridge. Twenty-five years later, the same question remains: How could this have happened? Drawing upon eyewitness accounts, Ruby Ridge: American Experience is a riveting, minute-by-minute account of the event that helped give rise to the modern American militia movement. New! Tuesday, February 14, 8 pm CT The century old tradition of folding two-dimensional paper into three-dimensional shapes is now at the heart of a scientific revolution. NOVA’s The Origami Revolution shows that the rules of folding are at the heart of many natural phenomena, from how leaves blossom to how beetles fly. But now, origami is being adopted in designing new drugs, micro-robots, even future space missions! New! Wednesday, February 15, 8 pm CT Many Prairie Public local television productions are funded in part by the following: Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund with money from the voters on November 4, 2008, North Dakota Council on the Arts, North Dakota Humanities Council, and by the members of Prairie Public.
