BTN LiveBIG: Share A Solution stories

We are just three days away from the deadline for Big Ten students to submit stories of solution coming from their universities. Here are two more showing the positive impact Big Ten students, staff and faculty can have.

In 2012, ten students from the University of Nebraska- Lincoln College of Journalism and Mass Communications began interviewing members of the Tulsa Muscogee (Creek) tribe of Native Americans in Oklahoma. After three semesters of work, they have created the Native Daughter’s project, a gathering of stories to inspire young, Native girls to achieve their dream. This story is a part of the Native Daughter’s Project. Watch and learn about an innovative training model one family of Creek is employing to preserve their language.

Jenna Jaynes with NewsNetNebraska (University of Nebraska) shares this story.

For immigrants whose first language is not English, something as simple as playing a board game can be a challenge. Through her company Culturally Inclined Productions, Rutgers alumna has come up with a solution, creating a game that not only entertains but also educates Indians about their culture.

Erin Wash at The Daily Targum (Rutgers University) shared this story.

Students, keep your stories coming! Remember, anything created since September 2013 is eligible, and should be submitted by Friday, April 18, to be considered for the inaugural BTN LiveBIG Solutions Journalism Award.
