AETN's hitting the streets!

Posted on 26 Aug 2010

AETN is shedding some new light on Arkansas's 2010 election season -- we've decided to venture out into the state, and ask Arkansas voters their thoughts and opinions about the issues.

Tomorrow, Aug. 27, we'll be scouring Central Arkansas for people willing to answer two simple questions:

1. What issues are important to you in this election, and why?

2. What question would you ask the candidates in this election if you had the opportunity?

See if you can spot us in the breakfast crowd at Bob's Grill in Conway in the morning, or hoofing it around Little Rock in the afternoon. Then in coming weeks we'll be visiting cities and towns around the state.

We'd love to hear your thoughts, but please keep it civil.

Stay tuned for updates! 


Arkansas and the American Dream
We’re all familiar with the American Dream — the idea that anyone in the United States can climb the economic ladder of opportunity — but is it still achievable? AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.


Volunteers Like You
You can have fun, help others and support causes and organizations by sharing a bit of your spare time and volunteering! Learn how you (or your group) can help others — and yourself — by working with AETN Foundation.


Parents, PJs and Pies
Wear your PJs and join us for a fun-filled family event as we and our partners at Dropping Back in and Healthy Families of Faulkner and Conway Counties share education resources on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.! “Parents, PJs and Pies” will feature a BBQ lunch, giveaways, fun activities and special “Llama Llama Red Pajama” gift bags.


“Back Road Barns” - Viewer Photos
Coming to AETN on Thursday, Aug. 25, “Back Road Barns” travels through rural Arkansas on a visual road trip to classic barns that have long been a part of our culture. See a preview of what you have to look forward to by scrolling through viewer photo submissions for a special segment of the AETN original film.


Save the Date for AETN Family Day
Travel back in time to the 1960s when AETN first came on the airwaves at Family Day 2016: Peace, Love and AETN! We’re celebrating our 50th anniversary with screenings of episodes of classic programs from the AETN Video Vault, opportunities to meet your favorite PBS KIDS characters and sneak peeks of what to expect next on Saturday, Sept. 24.
