BelmontVISION.com and Student Video Journalists Win Awards

BelmontVISION.com and two of its student video journalists are the winners of multiple awards honoring outstanding work during the 2008-2009 school year.
BelmontVISION.com video journalists Abby Selden and Jessica Walker are each the winner of a Communicator Awards Award of Distinction and a Videographer Awards Award of Distinction for their individual reporting efforts during the 2008-2009 school year. Their separate entries included work done during the Town Hall Presidential Debate, but also included a variety of other stories having interest to the Belmont community. All can currently be viewed on the BelmontVISION.com Web site.
“As a team and as individuals, these students have excelled in every way possible,” says New Century Journalism instructor Stephan Foust. “They have been judged by award-winning independent professionals who know good work when they see it.”
Both the Videographer and Communicator competitions draw thousands of entries from television stations, production houses, and universities around the world.
Since February, the BelmontVISION.com video team has won a total of eight regional, national, and international awards for reporting.
