Seminole Ridge TV Students Nominated for Student Emmy!

This spring our students were asked to produce a serious news package to run on WPTV News about an issue that they cared about.  Several students stepped up to the challenge and their excellent story on the Teen Vaping Epidemic did air on WPTV NewsChannel 5.  This morning I learned that their hard work has also netted them a nomination by the Suncoast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (the Regional Emmys) for a Student Production Award!  
We are one of three schools from the Suncoast Region (Florida, Alabama & Louisiana) under consideration for the award!  I believe they will announce the winners this Friday.  I am extremely proud of Ashley Pellicone, Rachel Clarke, Hunter Wood, Cassi Narcus, Amanda Jewett, Magali Nicho and Anne Perry!
