The Kansas Association of Broadcasters holds an annual TV and Radio competition for high school students.

On March 10, the Kansas Association of Broadcasters (KAB) released the results for its annual competition that evaluates audio and video projects made by students around the state. Tribe Broadcasting earned four awards out of seven entries submitted.

With technical difficulties and moving into a new studio at the beginning of the year, instructor Dan Balman said he thought the competition went well.

“I’m very pleased with how we did with the number of entries we sent in and the kids that placed,” Balman said.

Not only does Balman want to submit more video projects next year, but also, he would like to focus more on radio projects.

“We could have knocked the ball out of the park with radio [by] sending in some PSAs and some commercials,” Balman said. “I’m hoping in the future that kids buy into putting together news stories not just for television but for radio.”

The results are as follows:
