This is an effort to keep the kids off the streets and involved in positive activities. “Graffiti Street,” the Virgin Island’s premier television teen talk show, is in its 18th season. It was established as an outlet for high school students on St. Thomas to express their views on the topics that were of local and national interest to their age group. Graffiti Street has since expanded throughout the territory with a cast of St. Thomas-St. John students and a cast on St. Croix. The casts are made up of students from the public, parochial and private high schools throughout the territory. All students from grades 9-12 are invited to audition at the beginning of the school year.
