NISD Northwest Highschool Nominated For Lone Star Emmy
NHSTV, Northwest High School’s student-run television broadcast, has received a Lone Star Emmy nomination for its daily productions, one of the top honors in its medium.
The Lone Star Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences nominated NHSTV in the best high school newscast category, where it will compete against four peer newscasts. A full list of 2019 Lone Star Emmy nominees in the high school and collegiate levels can be seen here.
NHSTV broadcasts a 10-minute daily live show at Northwest High School, produced by students in Northwest ISD’s Creative Media Production Academy. Students report on school, local and national news in the academy’s newly renovated television production facility, featuring equipment from professional-level vendors Ross Video, Panasonic and CueScript.
The Lone Star Chapter Regional Student Television Awards for Excellence promotes best practices to high school students and serves as an incentive for the pursuit of excellence in television journalism. This awards program recognizes student-produced TV journalism throughout the state.
NHSTV students were invited to attend the 2019 Lone Star Emmy Awards Show on Nov. 16 in Arlington, where winners in their category will be named along with nominations of professionals in the state broadcast industry. The winner of the Lone Star Chapter will then compete in the national competition.
Notably, NHSTV’s nomination follows its fourth consecutive time earning the Student Broadcast Network’s Best Daily Live Show in the Southwest Region award.
