The First Amendment and the high school campus.

As part of their participation they were required to return home and produce a piece on the first amendment in their community. Both girls immediately recalled students Wes and Grace coming to school at Halloween dressed as a condom and zygote, and how they were required to take them off. This piece explores just how far the first amendment goes on a Utah high school campus with strong undertones of sex education.

Review of Condom Conundrum

"what I did for Halloween was I ordered a giant Sperm suit off of Ebay"
My first question is who sells sperm suits on ebay?
Cori Santos and Hailey Henderson found an enticing story and mixed the interview audio well with a very appropriate soundtrack. "Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights"
This is a funny, light, piece with serious content.
