Take part in new CBC Kids Show

Hello Sask Homeschoolers!

I am a researcher for Apartment 11 Productions (in Montreal) and right now we are in the early outreach period for a new multi-platform project we are doing for CBC called Cross Country Fun Hunt (CCHF). CCFH is a children’s project aimed at kids between the ages of 8-15. Essentially the goal is to find the most fun and special places in Canada! The best part is that these places will be CHOSEN BY KIDS themselves! The CCFH website that launches at the beginning of May will be filled with profiles from kids all over Canada and videos explaining their most favorite fun things to do in their city/town/neighbourhood. These profiles and videos submitted by kids from all across the country will be displayed on a huge and very cool interactive map of Canada. At the beginning of July our host and the Fun Hunt van will be going on an epic road trip to visit the “funnest” places and kids in the country- these visits will be turned into webisodes and then a TV series that will air on CBC in the fall!

What we are looking for NOW is for select organizations/networks across the country to let us know of any kids or groups of kids that would want to take part in this early outreach period and be one of the first kids to get their fun place (and video) up on the map when the site officially launches in early May. It would also be great if you could spread the word about the project on your site/blog/newsletter/etc. (to promote the early outreach and/or the official site launch in May). I have attached a full description of the project for you as well as a postcard that you can post online or pass along to friends/colleagues you think would be interested.

Example videos we have received so far: http://www.youtube.com/user/CCFHearlybird
We are looking to get these early videos by mid April.
