The High School Broadcast Journalism Project (HSBJ), a journalism education program of RTNDF, promotes broadcast journalism by helping high schools establish and maintain outstanding broadcast journalism programs. Last week it featured Hillcrest High School in Springfield, MO.
This week all our featured videos will come from one school – but from many years. For 20 years, students at Hillcrest High School in Springfield, MO, have produced HTV Magazine. This is a broadcast program that uses a strong journalistic approach to “tell the story.” The show has earned 10 Broadcast Pacemakers from NSPA, six Robert F. Kennedy Awards, five consecutive “Excellence Awards” from STN, and three national student Emmys from NATAS. Official anniversary date is Oct. 12 and the alumni are coming back for a 20-year reunion on Saturday, Oct. 17. HSBJ salutes Hillcrest High School, adviser Dave Davis and 20 years of young broadcast journalists.
Congrats Dave, and all of the alumni of the program!
