___xx__ Text (2 photos and/or graphics)

___x__ Video

_____ Audio slideshow

Your pitch (in one short paragraph):

In light of a new UNL study, “Schools that ban junk food at mealtime are 18% lighter,” I would like to do a story on the steps that LPS takes to ensure their students are nutritiously well fed.  The Nutrition Services Department for LPS has to walk a fine line between a moderate costing well-balanced meal that meets all federal, state and district requirements.  This story will discuss how that is accomplished.

Explain why this story is best told using this format.

This story will be told in text form.  There will be many voices supplying nutritional information that will be best told and explained with a text story.

How will you tell this story visually? Please be specific.

I will supplement this story with a video.  My video will include B-roll of high school students as they get their lunch and prepare to eat it.  On the video I will have students telling me their opinion of the meals supplied by the school.  I will also have a school administrator talking about the benefits of each meal provided.

List the names and titles of the sources (both those you have talked with already and those you plan to talk to) and describe what role they will play in the story.

I will talk to Mary G McGarvey and Patricia Kennedy the two UNL professors who were behind the initial study on snack foods.  Representatives of the LPS Nutrition Services Department.  And maybe some state senators or law makers about any legislation that deals with public school nutrition.
