Blue Valley's Student News Team earns national recognition
The 2006-07 Student News Team of Blue Valley Television has earned national recognition for their work in broadcast journalism. The results of the 2007 National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) Broadcast Story of the Year competition were recently announced. Awards were given out at the JEA / NSPA National Convention last week in Philadelphia.
First place honors for Broadcast Feature Story were awarded to Blue Valley West graduate Courtney Bullis and Blue Valley High graduate Scott Simpson. Their story featured an elementary student who is thriving in the United States after surviving the civil war in Sierra Leone.
A Blue Valley North football player's struggle with a medical condition was the focus of a sports feature that won second place in the Broadcast Sports Story category. Blue Valley West graduate Hannah Pederson and Blue Valley North graduate Phil Nohe teamed up to tell his story.
Adviser to the Student News Team is Bruce McRoberts.
