SPA Winners

CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the 2018 NATAS-Lower Great Lakes Student Production Awards!

We are thrilled to recognize some truly outstanding work done by high school students in our Chapter.

Our judges were impressed with the overall quality and abilities of these young broadcasters.  Their creativity and technical skills made this a very competitive field.

STUDENT AWARD LANGUAGE:

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and the Lower Great Lakes Chapter is proud of the students and schools receiving this year’s Student Production Awards. However, it should be noted that NATAS restricts the use of the term “Emmy®” to professional awards.

Students may say they are recipients of a NATAS-Lower Great Lakes Regional Student Production Award. They may also say they received a Student Production Award from the NATAS-Lower Great Lakes chapter. Students and schools may use the image of the crystal pillar in their awards promotion.

It is important to note that students did not receive Emmy® awards or Student Emmy® Awards. The Emmy® name and statue are registered trademarks. Students and schools may not use the Emmy® name or figure to reference the Student Production awards. That includes mentions in publications, promotions or resumes.
