Peter Savage Receives Student Production Award

(June 7, 2017) – Wooster High School junior Peter Savage received the Student Production Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Lower Great Lakes Chapter for his public services announcement (PSA) titled, “Technology Today.”

Each year the NATAS recognizes outstanding student achievements in production. NATAS is a professional service organization dedicated to the advancement of the arts and sciences of television and related media and the promotion of creative leadership for artistic, educational and technical achievements within the television industry, best known for the coveted Emmy® Award.

“Peter is such a creative student,” said Nathan Greene, WSTR TV supervisor. “I am so happy that Peter found a creative outlet in video production to share his talents. He is just beginning his journey in video production. I am excited to see what the future holds for Peter.”

Savage created the PSA “Technology Today” for an assignment in his television production class. The PSA focuses on how technology can help students and impact their futures. Savage was responsible for the content and production of the video. It took him a week to complete the project.

Greene was so impressed with Savage’s project that he submitted it for the NATAS Student Production Award. Entries were judged on three criteria: content, creativity and execution.

To recognize this accomplishment, the school will be presented with a crystal pillar award and Savage will receive a certificate.
