CTAM- How Cable Grows
The mission of the Community Television of Maine is to help advance democratic ideals by ensuring that people in Maine have access to electronic media. In order for democracy to flourish, people must be active participants in their government, educated to think critically, and free to express themselves. Students enrolled in The Community course are required to serve the Madawaska area by covering events outside of the typical school day, including but not limited to: government meetings, school sports, community events, and other school activities. Madawaska's residents benefit from this service by viewing local programming over Channel 16.
