Young people are savvy to messages put out by media, and that understanding is set to be showcased at the fourth annual MGenFest on Friday.
MGenFest is short for Immediate Generation Festival, and students in Helena public schools have produced their own “messages that matter” in print and video formats. The public is welcome to attend MGenFest for free, hosted by Youth Connections Coalition, from 5 to 7 p.m. at ExplorationWorks.
Submissions are judged for creativity and effectiveness by a group of volunteer judges.
“The event grows a little and gets better every year, and we really hope families and the community will attend to support MGenFest and all the students that participated,” said Drenda Carlson, Youth Connections director.
