3 legislators challenge kids to turn off the TV

In celebration of "National TV-Turnoff Week," state Sen. Robert H. Kittleman and Dels. Gail H. Bates and Warren E. Miller of District 9A have issued a challenge to students to go without television for one week and participate in other activities.

Students and their parents can visit, a Web site designed by the organizers of the national campaign, for suggestions about activities and reading lists. The site also offers an organizer's kit that includes stickers and educational ma- terial.

Students who successfully abstain from television for a week by May 14 will receive a certificate and are invited to celebrate at an event sponsored by the legislators.

A pledge for students to sign is available at elementary schools or by calling 410-841- 3556.
