Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Concert
Thanksgiving night at 7:00
It was 50 years ago, in 1965, when Arlo Guthrie took out the trash following a Thanksgiving dinner that "couldn't be beat". It started a chain of events including Arlo's arrest for littering, court appearance, and rejection from military service depicted in his hilarious and iconic song, Alice's Restaurant. The song went platinum, spawned a full length motion picture, and became an American tradition ubiquitously played on hundreds of radio stations at Thanksgiving. In this concert, Arlo deftly performs the song for the first time in over a decade.

Collaboration Boosts Literacy
Area children will have an opportunity to start and add to their own personal libraries through the collaborative efforts of KMOS-TV and two other University of Central Missouri organizations.

A partnership between KMOS-TV, the university's public broadcasting station; Keen Reading, a literacy action initiative developed by Matt Thomas, professor of reading at UCM; and Enactus, a student entrepreneurial action organization at UCM, resulted in the receipt of a PBS KIDS Local Book Distribution grant.

Thank You to the City of Jefferson!
KMOS-TV had a great time at the Multicultural Fall Festival on October 3. We thank everyone who stopped by to visit, meet Maya and Miguel, engage in our "magnetizing" activities, and learn the benefits of writing at any age as we celebrated one of the PBS Young Writers winners - Karsten, of Versailles. For two years in a row, his winning stories have placed in the national PBS competition, so it seemed only right to celebrate in the state's capital. Making the presentation was city mayor Carrie Tergin, along with PBS characters Maya and Miguel (left, and KMOS Education Coordinator Mary Clevenger (right).
Read all the 2015 stories, including Karsten's story "Who Needs Math?"

Celebrating all the finalists in the 2015 KMOS Young Writers Contest!
Thanks to all who entered this annual contest, we love having the opportunity to read the wonderful stories sent in by all the talented children in our region. Congratulations to our finalists!

Pro-Literacy Partnership
KMOS-TV and PBS KIDS are partnering with Overstock to make books available to children through PBS stations across the nation. Now until August 15th, proceeds from your purchase at the Kid Zone will help support this mission.

The Powerful Effects of Sesame Street
A new paper by Melissa Kearney, an economics professor at the University of Maryland, and Phillip Levine, an economics professor at Wellesley College, finds that kids can learn as much from Sesame Street as a preschool classroom. The most authoritative study ever done on the impact of Sesame Street, finds that one of public TV's most recognizable shows has delivered lasting educational benefits to millions of American children - benefits as powerful as the ones children get from going to preschool.
