Straight Talk scheduled

"Teens & Sex…The Real Truth" is a one-hour community forum with a special focus for middle school students presented by the Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation, in partnership with the Jacksonville media, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida and the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy to be aired during National Teen Pregnancy Prevention month. Since some studies show that sexual activity and awareness has increased in the middle school age group, this program will address issues that middle school students face today. Issues such as peer pressure and the consequences of teen sex which include pregnancy and sexually-transmitted infections such as HIV/ AIDS. The purpose of the program is to promote thoughtful discussion and encourage responsible behavior.

The show will be hosted by local broadcast personality, Jennifer Candelino and, will feature Jaguars Offensive Tackle, Ephraim Salaam (#76); ROAR cheerleader, Sunny Hill; local radio personalities, DJ Dr. Doom and Jay Styles; a special musical guest, Madyson and, a special appearance by Jaguars co-owner and Foundation Chair/CEO, Delores Barr Weaver. A studio audience of local middle school students will be discussing questions they have with medical, legal and relationship panelists and special guests.

This year's show will also include a piece featuring Jaguars players Kyle Brady, Donovin Darius, Maurice Williams and Joe Zelenka interviewed by student reporter, Hiatt Woods.

An exciting component of the show is a Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest among Jacksonville area middle and high schools. Six finalist entries from Baker County High School; Bartram Trail High School; Clay High School; Fleming Island High School; Hilliard Middle-High School; and, Paxon School for Advanced Studies will be aired on the show and home viewers can vote for their favorite PSA on-line at The winner will be judged on production quality, message, creativity and on-line votes.
