BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Lucky area high school students are working with C-Span to help broadcast the third Presidential Debate — set for next Monday at Lynn University.
According to the network:
C-SPAN representatives are traveling to Boca Raton to work with area high school and college students surrounding the final presidential debate which takes place at Lynn University.
On Sunday, 20 students selected by the Urban League of Palm Beach County will join a representative from the Commission on Presidential Debates and C-SPAN to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the debate hall and media filing center. Students will learn about the Commission on Presidential Debates and their role in planning each event, a history of the debates, and about C-SPAN’s unique programming covering each of the debates.
Monday morning 10 students from Lynn University will have the rare opportunity to participate in C-SPAN’s LIVE morning call-in program, Washington Journal. Using Skype, a select group of students from the university will be asking questions to the nation’s leading journalists, lawmakers, and lobbyists. The segment will be at 8:30am – 9:15am ET and will take place on the campus of Lynn University.
Additionally, on Wednesday, three seniors and one teacher from Spanish River High School will be working with C-SPAN behind the scenes at the debate using social media to bring their unique perspective to this event. Through Twitter and Tout, students will share their viewpoints and get reactions from other debate attendees, journalists, and political surrogates during the debate watch party on the campus of Lynn University and in C-SPAN’s work space of the media room. Their tweets will be featured on C-SPAN’s Debate Hub (www.c-span.org/debates) and their Touts will be on C-SPAN’s Tout page (www.tout.com/cspanpolitics).
