CHESTERTON | Nearly 800 students and instructors from 25 high schools throughout Indiana participated in the 10th annual Indiana Association of School Broadcasters Conference and Competition.
The event, presented by UIndy’s student-staffed broadcast operations, UIndy TV and public radio station WICR-FM/HD at the University of Indianapolis, included more than 30 educational sessions, workshops and roundtable discussions, many led by television and radio professionals from the Indianapolis market and throughout the state.
Chesterton High School was one of the schools that participated in the IASB competition. Top awards were based on the results in 24 specialty categories of which most were judged in advance from mailed-in submissions.
CHS junior Nick Moreno, WDSO training director, received a first-place award for an in-depth feature story about the Apple computer tones you hear when you turn on your computer and what they mean.
Third-place certificates were awarded to junior Dallas Milligan, WDSO sports director, in the Sportscast category and junior Sarah Duron, WDSO promotions director, in the Copywriting category.
