Welcome to the Midwest Center for Media. We live in a complex world. The vast majority of what we know about health, politics, the environment, and the world is delivered to us through media sources.

The Midwest Center for Media helps children, teachers, and community members understand the ways in which the media shapes our beliefs and behaviors and teaches the skills needed to harness the power of the media in a positive way.



BackTalk is our feature media education and advocacy program. This year's program invites students to talk back to Big Tobacco by using media to voice their opinions. Find out more about BackTalk!
