UE Communication Students Nominated for Student Emmy
Posted: Monday, June 17, 2019
UE communication students Brea Mullen and Amanda Ackerman have been nominated for a Student Emmy for their documentary, The Guatamala Project: A Habitat for Humanity Mission.
Each year, UE students travel the globe with Habitat for Humanity. In May 2018, Mullen and Ackerman traveled to Guatamala to document the experience and came out with a moving testimonial of lifechanging aid that #UEChangemakers are providing all over the world. The trailer for the documentary can be viewed on the UE YouTube channel.
The Student Emmys are presented each year by the Ohio Valley Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. This year's Student Production Award competition received a record number of entries from colleges, universities, and high schools across a four state region.
“Our professional judges are not an easy group to impress. However, the students from our region continue to raise the bar. It’s not unusual to get comments from the judges about high quality of work being produced. so it says a lot about this year’s Student Production Award entrants that they had some of the highest overall scores ever,” said Echo Gamel, co-chair of the Student Production Awards for the Ohio Valley Chapter. “It is exciting to see the NATAS standard of excellence demonstrated in so many student submissions. Congratulations to all of those honored this year."
Award recipients will be announced during the Student Production Awards ceremony on August 10, 2019.
