K-STATE STUDENTS EARN MOST HONORS IN 2010 KANSAS ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS' STUDENT COMPETITION

MANHATTAN -- Students from Kansas State University earned 53 awards -- the most by any school at the collegiate level -- in the Kansas Association of Broadcasters' 2010 Student Broadcast Awards competition. In addition, three K-State mass communications students received scholarships from the broadcasting association.

The honors were presented April 6 at the association's annual student awards luncheon in Wichita. Competition in the collegiate division, offered at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, was for radio and television programs at community colleges, colleges and universities in Kansas.

In all, K-State students earned 24 first-place awards, 13 second-place honors and 16 honorable mentions for both individual and group efforts. In the undergraduate radio competition, K-State finished first in 12 of the 18 categories offered.

Most of the entries in the competition were for work done by students at K-State's student FM radio station, Wildcat 91.9, or for K-State's cable television channel, K-State TV.
