This fund raiser will allow more students to travel across the state and participate in the annual state broadcast journalism convention. At this convention, high school and middle school students participate in broadcast seminars, computer video editing, onscreen talent contest and breakout sessions. These extra funds would allow for more freedom to participate in more events against more competition. We would like to participate in many more contest that showcase the students broadcast television skills, on-camera talent, and computer generated graphic skills. Travel and hotel expenses, contest entry fees and meals are always the biggest problem. We spend all year preparing the students to do these skills, then don't have the resources to fund the number of students that could participate. We are in a small community that is enindated with fundraising request, and that leaves us little fundraising opportunities.
