Ballard High School students are among those nominated by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for their National Student Production Awards.
The nominees were selected from winners at regional Emmy Awards ceremonies across the country. Four productions by students in Ballard High School’s Digital Filmmaking Program won top prizes in the five-state Northwest Region last June. Three of these productions have now been nominated at the national level.
The Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) has presented High School Awards of Excellence for years to celebrate and promote the most outstanding high school television productions from five Northwest states: Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. This year the Academy added a national level to the competition.

All of the nominated productions can be viewed on the Digital Filmmaking Program’s vimeo page.
The awards presentation will be held at the Newseum in Washington, DC, at 12:30 p.m. (EST) on October 4. The event will be streamed live online.
