The News and Views program provides elementary and secondary school students within the Archdiocese of New York an opportunity to experience television journalism by researching a topic and creating a news program. The students choose a topic that they can research and present on in the various mediums. This year the Lourdes team chose Generation Z: The Truth Behind the Stereotypes.
“This is a complete team effort,” said News & Views moderator Mrs. Lauren Katz. “Whether they are behind the scenes or in front of the camera, everyone on this team had a role in our overall success. I am exceptionally proud of each of them.”
Over 350 students throughout the Archdiocese participated this year and 99 were nominated for awards. Instructional Television (ITV) service for the schools of Archdiocese announced these nominations in March and once again our entire team received nominations in the various categories and techniques of research, graphics, anchor, news team, survey, feature, interview, editorial, debate and photo essay.
Great job and congratulations to the entire News & Views Team!
