Canada's MediaSmarts (once known as Media Awareness Network, many years ago) is launching a program called the Teen Fact-Checking Network and is recruiting participants right now. "Teen Fact-Checkers will pitch potentially false or misleading stories or images they come across on social media, as well as stories that look "too good to be true" but really are true. Once the pitch is approved, they'll research and write a script, gather production elements, and record and edit at least one fact-checking video that will appear on MediaSmarts' social media channels." I like this is many ways, obviously.
