Winner 1956

Youth Wants to Know

NBC Television

Modeled after similar programs for adults, one of which, Meet The Press, has previously won a Peabody Award, Youth Wants To Know is a commendable response by television to its obligations to the citizens of tomorrow. In this series, panels of boys and girls question noted persons from diverse fields on subjects of current interest. Questions and questioners regularly reveal an intelligence and a development by today’s young people which are indeed heartening. Youth Wants To Know (NBC) effectively combines news, education, and entertainment, and as such, merits the George Foster Peabody Television Award for youth and children’s programs for 1956, which is hereby presented.
