FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Student-produced show earns international kudos
A student-produced show on
Blue Valley Television has earned top recognition for the second year in a row
from the Communicator Awards, sponsor of an annual video competition.
The 2003-04 Student News
Team earned a Crystal Award of Excellence for Good Morning, Blue
Valley in the Education
Institutions/Student Produced category.
This award is given to those entries whose ability to communicate puts
them among the best in the field.
Approximately 14 percent of 2,937 entries from 48 states, the
Columbia and 7 other countries
received this highest recognition awarded by this organization.
The Communicator Awards is
an international awards competition founded by communications professionals to
recognize excellence in the field.
Rather than competing against other competitors, entries are judged
against a high standard of excellence.
Industry professionals judge the entries, looking for groups and
individuals "whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work
serves as a benchmark for the industry."
Members of the
BVTV Student News Team learn the
advanced skills necessary as reporters and operators of studio and field
equipment through hands-on training and practical application. Student
productions include a one-hour live weekly news show, Good Morning Blue
-- a news magazine -- that incorporates feature stories about the programs and
people within the schools; and It's Game
Time, a show that highlights Varsity athletics in the Blue Valley School
District. Adviser for the Student
News Team is Bruce McRoberts.
BVTV18 shows can be seen on
Time-Warner Cable and Comcast Cable channel 18. The complete programming and current
