NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.– A group of Westminster students entered the Broadcast Education Association (BEA) On-Location Creative Competition, and were awarded an “Award of Excellence” for their entry “Explore, Experience and Experiment at Westminster’s Outdoor Labs.” Laura Page, Terrell Cleckley, Jackie Shultz, Justin Shaw, and David Austin will be recognized for their work at the BEA On-Location 2017 Super-Regional Conference at Point Park University in September.
The students created their video entry as part of a corporate video promotion project in BC 251/Single Camera Video Production during the Fall 2016 semester.
“The BEA’s student media festivals and peer review platforms are rigorous and competitive,” says Bradley Weaver, Westminster College broadcast communication lecturer. “Judges review our students’ work against productions from many large, prominent universities. This recognition raises the profile of our student projects. It also informs my teaching and serves as direct assessment for the program and the College”
Weaver is attending the BEA conference in September. He will present on service learning projects, and plans to attend other workshops along with the award screenings.
