FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BVTV Student News Team goes for number four in 2004

The Blue Valley School District's Broadcast Technology program is one of eight finalists in the 2004 National Scholastic Press Association's (NSPA) Pacemaker competition. Considered the Pulitzer Prize in school publications, the Pacemaker awards will be announced at the Fall National High School Journalism Convention in Atlanta, Georgia on November 20th.  Judges for this contest are professional broadcast journalists who have no affiliation with NSPA.

 

The news show Good Morning, Blue Valley is the Student News Team's entry for 2004.   In addition to sports highlights and weather, this edition includes features on teen driving safety, how parents have lobbied for legal reforms in the aftermath of a tragedy, and with the help of district staff, a seven year old student beats the odds.

 

The Blue Valley program has previously won three Pacemakers, in 2001 through 2003.  Winning a fourth award in 2004 would give this program the distinction of being only the second school program in Broadcast Pacemaker history (instituted in 1997) to win four consecutive years. 

Adviser for the Student News Team is Bruce McRoberts.
