WATCH LOCAL MAKERS STORIES ON KCPT IN FEBRUARY
Coinciding with the national airdate of MAKERS in February 2013, KCPT will produce three featurettes of women who have made a difference in the greater metropolitan area of Kansas City. The featurettes will be broadcast as interstitials in conjunction with the national program, will air in a KCPT magazine program, The Local Show, and will be available on the KCPT website, Facebook and Youtube pages.
How do we choose who to feature? You!
You submit your nomination of who should be celebrated as a woman who has made a difference in KC. We will cull the featurette stories from your nominations. You’ll also be able to vote for your favorite stories, helping us determine which of the stories will become a featurette.
Go to makers-kc.org nominate right now! Write up a paragraph and submit a photo. It’s that easy!
