The awards honor individuals, publications, websites, television and radio stations for their outstanding achievements in reporting and interpreting public education issues.
“The John Swett Award reflects our commitment to quality journalism and our support of this community’s educators,” said Risa Omega, KXTV’s general manager.
NOTE: I graduated college wanting to be a high school English teacher, but life had other plans. So I’m partial to TV stations that focus on the great work teachers do every day.
One of the best community projects that spotlighted teachers was the Golden Apple Awards sponsored by WINK in Ft. Myers. Here are some videos we created around the Golden Apple Awards.
