“Dragonflies on Thin Air” is one of the few elementary age children’s radio shows produced by kids for kids in the country. The program is fun and educational for children and adults, and includes a mix of jokes, music, guests, stories, poetry, trivia and more.

The Dragonflies cover topics as wide-ranging as animals, farm schools, music, biking for kids, fandoms, art, cooking and international interests.

The troupe includes Ella, Becky, Lily, Rowan, Selje, Sebastian, Sophia, Donara, Hannah, Ian, Adele, Elizabeth, Pearl and Ziya. They all go to Spokane Public Montessori elementary school in Spokane, WA

On March 11th, 2010 “Dragonflies on Thin Air,” won the “Spirit of Jim Chase” Group Award and the Judge’s Choice for Creativity at the annual Chase Youth Awards in Spokane, WA. Also, Reyna Flores, founder of the Dragonflies program, won the Washington Association of Educators of the Talented and Gifted “2012 Distinguished Student Award,” in part because of her work on the radio program.
