SPA 2019

Thank you to all of the students who entered last year’s Student Production Awards competition. 


The NATAS – Lower Great Lakes Chapter wants to recognize and honor the talent of young broadcasters in our region.

To make entry in the Student Production Awards more available to the high schools in our membership area, our Board of Governors unanimously voted to lower the cost to enter submissions.

In the past, a fee of $20 was charged for each entry. We will now allow each high school to enter up to two entries in total to the awards at no charge; additional entries will be welcome and will continue to pay the $20 administrative fee. We, on the board, look forward to this move encouraging more students at more schools to enter and, in doing so, to help further our role in promoting and supporting up-and-coming talent in the field of the television arts and sciences.

This includes all high schools in the membership area of our organization which includes Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown, Bowling Green, Toledo, Lima and Mansfield, Ohio; Erie, Pennsylvania; Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Bloomington, Lafayette, and Muncie, Indiana.

More information will be published on our website at nataslgl.org; for questions, please feel free to contact the NATASLGL Education Chair, Rick Jackson, at RickJackson@ideastream.org
