Searider Productions wins national award
Waianae High School Searider Productions was honored Friday night by the National Television Academy and Hawaii Student Television during a private ceremony at KITV4.
The school received the National Student Television Award's Crystal Pillar Award (sports category) for its production of "A Paddle Though Time."
The student video makers traveled to New York City earlier this month to claim their prize in the NTA's national awards ceremony. Waianae High was one of only seven schools in the United States to be honored.
The NTA is best known as the organization that oversees the prestigious Emmy Awards.
Now in its fourth year, the NTA Awards for Excellence program is part of a nationwide commitment to educate the next generation of broadcast journalists.
