This study shows how three Chilean media construct in their discourse the social actor 'secondary students', in a multimodal way. It focuses on the representation of Televisión Nacional de Chile (also known as TVN), El Dínamo and El Ciudadano of this social group which is often suppressed suppressed from the media sphere. It is a qualitative study with a social semiotic approach, following the guidelines of Visual Grammar and the typology of representation of social actors by van Leeuwen (2003). The corpus comprised 15 multimodal texts of 2018 compiled from internet sites, which constitute a semiotic chain of a news event about education. The results suggest that TVN creates the meaning of an 'aggressor student', El Dínamo as a 'student to be reformed'; whereas El Ciudadano, represents him as a social actor who is an 'active participant'.
