2017 Michigan Student Broadcast Awards


Information has been sent to educational institutions across Michigan and is available on the MAB website about the 2017 Michigan Student Broadcast Awards.  If you are a teacher, advisor or professor, please make sure to post the information for your students and help them to participate in this year’s awards program. Students can submit work in several broadcasting categories.

Attention broadcasters:  you can help encourage young people to enter the broadcasting industry by calling area high schools and colleges that you have relationships with and encourage the faculty advisor to have students participate.  Schools or colleges need not have a specific broadcasting curriculum; it could be a club, English class or a digital media group.  They just need to have an audio/video program of some kind that is directed by an advisor who will sign their application forms.  You can also help by volunteering to judge these online entries.
