Eight students will take home awards for seven entries March 3 at the Oklahoma Broadcast Education Association’s student banquet day.
Entries were judged and critiqued Jan. 29 by local media professionals, the entry form reads. Guidelines required submissions to be completed in the 2010 academic year.
Andy Gibson, mass communications artist-in-residence, selected entries for submission and was notified of the honors.
“I couldn’t keep the good news to myself any longer,” he said in an e-mail to the winning students. “I’m so proud of all of you.”
