Last night, Wednesday, February 23, was the awards banquet for the annual Broadcast Awards which is a competition that covers everything associated with TV Broadcasting and includes commercials, PSAs, news stories, live broadcasts and even radio broadcasting. There are pre-recorded categories as well as "day of" competitions.
The awards are run similar to the Oscar's where there are five finalists and one of those is the overall winner. Springville High did well. Please congratulate these students when you see them!
