Sophomore Onalise Soto’s “Marching Band Life” is one of five entries in the general assignment category for the High School Student Production Awards of the Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The competition is aimed at promoting excellence by showcasing work created by high school students in news, craft and programming categories.
The chapter includes the states of Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Alaska. Winners will be announced June 6 and if Onalise wins the regional competition, Onalise’s segment would be considered for a national award.
“It is a big accomplishment just to be nominated and I’m so excited for Onalise,” says Cheyenne LaViolette, who teaches broadcast at Hanford High. “She is just one of our students doing great work telling the stories of Hanford High.”
