Ninth Annual Young Producer’s Award

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has announced the 9th Annual Young Producer’s Ward.

In addition to the monetary award, the winner will have an opportunity to work with area television professionals to produce a broadcast-quality PSA based on the storyboard. Once the PSA is produced, it will be aired on local television stations.
