 Over 200 students were culled from the 19 regional chapters of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and selected by industry professionals and university professors to advance to the national competition.  The winners were announced in a ceremony hosted by television personality Tom Bergeron, held at Emerson College in Los Angeles, CA. 

The Foundation of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) presents this competition annually which includes 23 programming and craft categories honoring student productions from across the country. The event was live streamed on the Academy’s social media channels and website. A full list of winners can be found here: www.emmyonline.tv

Our High School entrants showed themselves to be among the best in the country and we are very proud to honor their efforts.  Our Call for Entry for the next Student Production contest will open within the next few months.  I encourage students from around our region to enter. I congratulate all today’s winners and their advisors.
