When the Idaho State Board of Education announced their decision to continue the soft-closure of schools across the state through the end of the school year, both teachers and students were heartbroken that they wouldn't physically be together again.

Most school districts have already transitioned to online learning, but we know that many teachers are looking for even more ways to support to the students they miss seeing in their classrooms. That's where we come in!

We're looking for educators and support staff who want to send a 45,000 watt radio shout-out and a few words of encouragement to their students! Below you'll find the steps on how to record your message and send it to us. As we get your messages, we'll play them back on the air so that your students and their families know just how much they mean to you.

Don't be shy! Give a shout out to the Class of 2020. Brag on a student athlete. Tell us about your class's biggest achievement this year. We want to hear (and play) it all!
