Citizens in the making: West Virginia teens report from capital

Students from Richwood High School in West Virginia interviewed policymakers about education funding and stereotypes portrayed on MTV's "Buckwild" reality show taped in their home state. Student Reporting Labs mentor Chuck Roberts, of West Virgina Public Broadcasting, was on hand to help them get the best video and audio.

Suzanne Higgins, of WVPB, produced this behind-the-scenes video and talked to the teens about what they've learned from the Student Reporting Labs program.
