Maggie Messitt, Wisconsin Public Television, January 2011
EngageWisconsin is an online community engagement portal created by Wisconsin Public Television. Spearheaded by a 2010 KDMC Fellow, the site is focused on: 1) producing multimedia storytelling projects, promoting WPT and PBS documentaries & programming, 2) developing a platform through which WI residents can blog on program-related subjects, and 3) encourage viewer-created content. The site explores how to take viewers behind-the-scenes while also providing an interactive platform through which WI residents can share their stories, learn from one another, and discuss local issues. Ultimately, we see it as a place where Wisconsin residents and their diverse voices connect.
