JOURNALISM STUDENTS BRING HOME NATIONAL HONORS

Tigerville SC (June 19, 2013) At the recent 2013 National Religious Broadcasters Convention & Exposition held in Nashville, TN, several iNRB Student Awards were awarded to North Greenville University Mass Communication students.

“I commend these aspiring Christian media professionals for their excellent work,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “In these talented young people, we can catch a glimpse of the future of our industry. And I am encouraged by what I see.”

The Intercollegiate National Religious Broadcasters (iNRB) comprises Christian students with an interest or major in broadcasting, journalism, or media communications. The annual iNRB Student Awards program is open to iNRB members, and includes production contests, essay contests, and 36-hour production contests held at the NRB Convention.

This year, the first place winner of each category received a trophy, a certificate, a cash prize, free convention registration and a travel stipend to attend NRB 2013. Second and third place winners received a certificate.

In the Short Film category, Justin Robinson from Taylors won second place with his film titled Create.  In the Longer Film category, Chelsea Bailey from McAdenville, NC, Jonathan Derbyshire from Arden, NC, and Josh Weir from Marietta, SC won second place honors with their film titled Allegiance. Anna Moseley from Travelers Rest won third place in the News and Sports Radio category with her segment titled NGU Basketball.

In addition, Chelsea Bailey was awarded the Bob Dobbs Essay Scholarship with her essay titled Dispensing Darkness.

The essay scholarship contest, sponsored by KMA Direct Communications on behalf of the late KMA Senior Vice President of Media Relations Bob Dobbs, is open to all full-time undergraduate iNRB student members who have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and major in communications, broadcasting or journalism at an NRB member college or university. Scholastic and professional references must be submitted along with an essay about why the student wants to enter the field of Christian broadcasting or why the student wants to endeavor as a Christian in secular broadcasting.

Bailey received a $2,500 scholarship paid directly to their college or university to be applied toward educational expenses (tuition, board, and/or books).

“Chelsea's award was the first time an NGU student won this contest,” said Dr. Linwood Hagin, Mass Communication Department chair and professor.
