SALT LAKE CITY — Scripps, FOX 13’s parent company, is partnering with the News Literacy Project to promote the first-ever National News Literacy Week.

This project will play out all week in schools across the country, and we are working side-by-side with students here at home to create a news literate generation that can spot misinformation and prevent others from spreading it.

FOX 13 News partnered with students at Mountain Ridge High School in Herriman, Utah where students examined at how vaping is impacting their peers.
