On Saturday, students from Alpharetta High School will walk the red carpet with the best of the region’s television and high school video producers at the 2014 Southeast Regional EMMY Awards.
The southeast chapter is one 19 regional sections of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which is the same organization that sponsors the prestigious EMMY Awards.
The chapter represents television markets from Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina and North Carolina.
Alpharetta high won four awards for Best Newscast for “Morning Show,” awarded to students Ashley Marshall, Laura Anderson and Sydney Erickson; Best Talent, awarded to Ashley Marshall; Best Commercial for “Chorus Commercial,” awarded to Thomas Meason and Tate Rehklau; and Best Writing awarded to Austin Bailey and James Bernard for the sitcom, “The Edit Bay.”
Winners were selected by professional judging panels that scored the entries on the same criteria as the EMMY Awards – content, creativity and execution. The work also must be performed by students who are currently enrolled in high school. Tracy Misner serves as the school’s video production teacher and advisor.
The Southeast EMMY Awards Gala will be held at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead.
