The theme for the 2016 TML Conference was "Pump Up The Volume on Media Literacy." The conference was for teens between the ages 13 and 17.


Teens experienced a week-end immersive learning experience while residing on a college campus that empowered, trained and equipped them to become media literacy advocates in their schools and communities. Over the course of 2.5 days, teens learned media literacy skills, were exposed to media industry professionals/careers, and created a photo campaign that was on display in an exhibit at ImaginOn that launched during

National Media Literacy Week.
