TV Broadcast Camp

In partnership with Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, ThreeSixty conducted a one-week TV Broadcast Camp during the 2017, 2018 and 2019 summers. The theme is health equity, and the goal is to inspire more active participation in creating more equitable, healthier communities.

For 2019, media partners included the University of St. Thomas, Padilla, KARE 11, KSTP, WCCO TV, TPT, FOX 9, BMA Cable Networks, and the University of MN Hubbard School of Journalism & Mass Communication.

Below are the 21 videos created by TV Broadcast Camp students the past three summers.
