Three Lee’s Summit High School broadcasting students captured national awards at the Student Television Network Convention, held during March in Orlando, Fla.
Winners from Lee’s Summit High are Tessa Shrout, Gretchen Shackelford and RayLynn Emry-Callahan.
The students competed alongside more than 2,000 broadcast students from around the country. LSHS students won in the areas of best news production, best news bureau and first honorable mention for the Sweet 16 contest.
During the Sweet 16 contest, the three LSHS students produced a website, a news package, a news article, a photo gallery, staff profiles, tweets and other communications during 16 hours. The three LSHS students placed alongside other high schools competing in the same contest with more than 14 students on the other high schools’ teams.
