Beyond Graduation Digital Incubator Announcement


NALIP’s partnership with Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and World Channel has called out for stories that reflect upon the lives of students post their high school career and what the world has to offer them past the walls of their high schools.The evaluations for the Beyond Graduation Digital Incubator has been a long and tedious one. We received hundreds of amazing projects reflecting a multitude of voice passionate about telling a story we rarely see.
