bYou team visits a school newspaper at Terceira Island

Se bem nos lembramos (If We Remember Well) a school newspaper from Vitorino Nemésio High School located on Terceira Island, in the Azores archipelago, received a visit from the bYou project team. The newspaper is produced entirely by students for students, and it was one of the winners of the 2022/23 National School Newspaper Competition in the category Best School Newspaper. The contest is an initiative of newspaper Público, called Público at School, a media literacy project.

With the focus on children’s expressions through school media, the bYou team interviewed the students responsible for the newspaper.  The content aims to offer a space for students to express themselves, without interference of adults. Throughout the meeting, the newspaper team demonstrated enthusiasm for having a space for free expression and to think and do things outside the box, independent of regulated school activities.

The results of the research will be presented in a documentary and in academic publications, as well as assist practices and formulation of policies in the field.
