    TV/Film students around the district are continuing to earn recognition at the State level and beyond after competing in the annual Western Kentucky University (WKU) High School Media Awards.

    High school students from Kentucky and Tennessee entered their work in a number of categories, including broadcast, yearbook and newspaper. Students from Brentwood, Franklin, Fairview and Page high schools submitted some of their broadcast work and returned with several awards.

    Brentwood High took home four first-place awards, including Best News Story, Best High School Broadcast, Best Feature Story and Best News Videography.

    "Our film students had an amazing appearance at the WKU Media Scholars Day and Awards Ceremony," said BHS TV/Film teacher Sloan Ashworth. "We took home first or second in every category in which we entered. These kids have had a challenging year, and it was very cool to see them have so much success."

    Franklin High students won the Best Sports Story and Best Music Video categories.

    "We had a great trip to Western Kentucky," said FHS TV/Film teacher Keri Thompson. "I continue to be impressed with all these students' talents and dedication. It's always rewarding to see their excitement when they win, and I am so proud of them all."
