WSU Broadcasters Bring Home National Awards

OGDEN, Utah – Broadcast students from Weber State University recently received two grand-prize awards at the National Broadcasting Society’s student electronic media national competition.

WSU’s Scott Wiser of Plain City, who graduated in December 2008, won the grand prize in the animation category for his video “Creative Hat.”

The WSU video production team of Wiser and seniors Cathie Carnes and Jessica Schreifels, both from Ogden, won the grand prize in the video public service announcement category for “Code Purple.”  

WSU also had finalists in the Instructional/Industrial/Promotional Video, Audio Public Service Announcement and Music Video categories.

“It truly is an honor to be a finalist in this competition, so the fact that Weber State students were finalists in five categories and came home with two grand prizes is a very positive reflection of our students and the electronic media program,” said Terri Reddout, communication instructor and advisor to WSU’s student-run broadcast news organization Weber State News.

The competition, held in New York City, featured schools from across the county and was held in conjunction with the NBS national convention.
