KJZZ's SPOT 127 Receives Student Production Emmy Nominations

Story submitted by KJZZ Public Relations Coordinator Annette Flores
KJZZ’s Youth Media Center SPOT 127 officially opened its doors in November 2012, but the participants are already turning heads in the television industry!

Last week, the Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences nominated two SPOT 127 videos for Student Production Emmy Awards. The category is Arts and Entertainment/ Cultural Affairs.

The nominated video projects were produced by four high school students living in the Maryvale area, neither of whom had any previous experience in video production. The features are The Heart of Dance and Teenagers Coming Out. You can view both now by visiting the SPOT home page.

We are incredibly proud of the hard work that all of our participants have put into these projects,” said SPOT 127 Director Greg Pereira. “Their work would not be possible without the support of our colleagues at the Division of Public Service, Rio Salado College and our program partners so this really a win for all of us.”

NATAS will announce the winners during a formal ceremony on Oct. 10.
