To give students an opportunity to learn and utilize skills associated with televising a live television show.
Description of Activities:
The Broadcast Club will plan and implement all of the activities required to televise our live Hawkeye News Show each week: finding stories of interest, filming or photographing various school activities, writing a script, editing videos and photographs, working with teams of students who will be the live talent for each week, and operating the various equipment required to make the live show possible.
Interested students must fill out an application and request three teachers complete recommendations. These must be returned to the sponsor in the required time frame (within the first three weeks of the new school year). The broadcast club will be limited to ten to twelve members selected from all applicants by a committee of teachers. Students will be expected to attend all meetings.
Parents must complete a permission form when students apply to participate in the broadcast club. Club members’ parents must also complete a video release form for the school year in which their child will participate in the Broadcast Club.
The price of a t-shirt (if the club chooses one), not to exceed $20.
