- __TCTC’s Broadcast News team wins national championship May 22, 2013
Trumbull Career & Technical Center’s Broadcast News Team, consisting of juniors in the Interactive Multimedia Program, emerged as national champions in their competition at the Business Professionals of America 2013 National Leadership Conference, “Uncover Your Magic,” held at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, May 7-12.
Our students joined more than 5,000 other conference delegates from across the nation to participate in national-level business skills competitions, workshops, general sessions, and the national officer candidate campaigns and elections.
For the final judging, the Broadcast News Team was handed 30 stories pulled from the Associated Press wire and was two hours to prepare a three-minute news presentation, live on camera, before the judges.
The winning team members are: Chandler Hodges, Justin Habraken, Ian Roberts, and Chris Taylor. Their triumph, instructor and advisor Kristofer Doran said, “is an extraordinary accomplishment. For four juniors to come out first in the nation shows the work and effort they put together as a team.”
TCTC’s Video Production Team, consisting of Sarah Ellis, Jalon Lee, Frank Carsone, and Brianna Kester, placed among the Top 12 in their competition, and Cassie Wagoner won a sixth place for her presentation in the Digital Media Production competition.
Eligibility to compete at the national level was based on winning at the regional level last January, with career and tech schools from Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana counties competing, and then placing among the top two in state competition in April.
“The conference is the culmination of a school year’s worth of business education and technology training that members of the local chapter of Business Professionals of America at TCTC have received,” chapter advisor Maureen Martin said.
