(INDIANAPOLIS) – Porter County Career and Technical Center won Television School of the Year and Homestead High School won Radio School of the Year at the 2018 Indiana Association of School Broadcasters (IASB) Awards Monday at the University of Indianapolis.

Homestead earned the honor for the second consecutive year, with two Homestead students, Cory Balkenbusch and Sydney Scholl, taking first and second place for Best Radio News Anchor. Students Tyree Jakes and Haynen Johnson from Porter County Career and Technical Center earned the top two spots in videography.

Nearly 900 students and instructors from 35 Indiana high schools and career centers attended the 15th annual IASB conference. Students participated in the IASB High School Broadcasting Competition and attended nearly 20 workshops that addressed topics including multimedia journalism, editing techniques, social media and sports broadcasting.

The top six radio air personalities and news anchors competed live on WICR-FM, and their television counterparts competed in the UIndy TV studio.

“Every year it becomes more difficult to judge this competition, not just because we continue to have a record number of entries from an increasing number of schools and career centers, but because the quality of the student work is incredible. There’s no doubt that the future of broadcasting is very bright when you see what the next generation of broadcast professionals is already doing. Congratulations to the students and their instructors for their amazing work,” said Scott Uecker, IASB President and Executive Director and University of Indianapolis Communication instructor.
