The “MinneHistories” TikTok series from Twin Cities PBS, produced by Anne Guttridge ’18, was a finalist in Current’s “Local that Works” contest, earning a $5,000 prize. “MinneHistories” was selected as a top project out of nearly 100 national submissions. The “Local that Works” contest is part of Current’s collaborative project to “showcase exceptional content and engagement projects that other media can replicate or scale.” Current is a nonprofit news organization covering public media in the U.S. for professionals in the industry.

“MinneHistories” are bite-sized content that share surprising pieces of Minnesota history with audiences on TikTok. Visuals, compelling storytelling and archival material allow “MinneHistories” to reach younger and more diverse audiences than broadcast, and the videos highlight undertold stories, such as those of BIPOC residents of Minnesota.
