|Studio One interns receive awards|
Studio One, the live television show produced by students at the University of North Dakota Television Center, recently received 12 awards at the Midwest Journalism Conference in Bloomington, Minn. The awards were presented by the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) and the Northwest Broadcast News Association (NBNA).
The Studio One web site was awarded first place in the student market web site category. In addition, several individual Studio One interns were honored by the SPJ and the NBNA for their contributions to the show. Studio One News Director Sarah McCurdy says it’s rewarding to see students recognized for their hard work.
“These students put a lot of effort into their stories every single week. So to see the smiles and that excitement as their name is called - it’s a lot of fun.”
