The high school student production awards are open to all high school students in the Mid-Atlantic region (PA, NJ and northern DE as well as the Wheeling/Stuebenville DMA).  NATAS Mid-Atlantic supports future industry professionals by recognizing the talented high school students with the High School Student Production Awards for Excellence.  We award $1000 as the Trently Prize for the school that wins the Newscast category.  We also provide a total of $1500 in scholarship money to the winner of the PSA category (The Norman Felsenthal Young Producer’s Award).  Additional pillars are available for purchase for all students named on a winning entry.

Our college/university awards are accepted through April of each year.  The 2019 deadline is April 26.  The college awards will be presented at the Mid-Atlantic Emmy® Awards ceremony on Saturday, September 28, 2019, at The Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh.
