The Green

3pm & 7pm Fridays, 2pm Sundays

Embracing the spirit of its name (The Green in Dover and the New Castle Green), The Green will provide an open-air meeting place for Delawareans to discuss events, consider issues and share ideas. This radio and online magazine will present the highest quality Delaware news and information. Through informed reporting, nuanced storytelling and in-depth interviews, The Green reaches past stereotypes and knee-jerk reactions to encourage a fuller, more robust discovery of Delaware, today.

Last fall, the University of Delaware's Center for Political Communication held its second annual audio essay contest, with the theme "Voices Matter."  It was held in conjunction with The Center for Political Communication’s National Agenda series “Midterm Matters,” which included the 2018 Delaware Debates Delaware Public Media helped produce last October.

Dozens of students participated by producing a wide range personal and emotional audio essays and Delaware Public Media was proud to help judge the entries.

Earlier this week, 10 finalists were honored at UD,  and the first second and third place award winners were announced.  And this week in our Enlighten Me segment, we present the 3 award winning essays.
