How many times have high school radio broadcasters heard this: "Your high school has a radio station?" or "I didn't have a radio station in my high school" or "It's so cool that you have a radio station in your high school".
Not everyone in your community knows you have a radio station in your school. Heck, there's students in your school that don't know you have a radio station in your school.
So few high schools in the United States have radio stations that we need to make the public aware of our existence by designating one day as "High School Radio Day". The very first High School Radio Day launched on May 16, 2012.
2015 FINAL TOTAL OF PARTICIPATING STATIONS: 70 stations from 29 states.
