The National Honor Society of UTHS is excited to present Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age. According to the movies’ makers, “Award-winning Screenagers probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world.” It has been very popular and enlightening to those who have seen it, and NHS is showing the movie for free!

The entire community is encouraged to attend. The National Honor Society is happy to host all within the Quad Cities who wish to observe the film.

Mrs. Monson, the leader of UT’s National Honor Society, is looking forward to the event, and so are the members of the group. When asked what she hopes people will realize after seeing this film, she quickly answered, “I hope that parents feel empowered and have resources to help reduce their children’s screen time. I hope students become more aware of how much they use their phones and consider limiting themselves a bit, and I hope the community sees this as an opportunity to come together and learn to support each other.”
