VMSTV WINS IVIE AWARDS GRAND RECOGNITION HONOR
Competing against the County's best middle school broadcast journalism programs, VMSTV came out on top, Tuesday, May 14, with the iVIE Grand Recognition Award. Each year the County of San Diego chooses one middle school program that it considers the "best of the best."
In front of an audience of approximately 1000 attendees, VMSTV was honored with the "Grand Prize" iVIE for a story produced by 8th graders Bronson Montgomery and Ethan Joves. Their story, "Andres Oches" was produced in Las Vegas earlier this year. The story profiles the courage of a local teen who became a champion motorcycle racer after suffering from a life threatening accident.
The award includes a cash prize, a large trophy, and a SONY HD camera. This is VMSTV's 12th consecutive iVIE Award and our 2nd Grand Recognition Award since we began broadcasting at Valley in 2001.
