Television Academy Foundation Announces 38th College Television Awards Nominees

March 23, 2017 | By
The Television Academy Foundation has announced the nominees for the 38th College Television Awards, hosted at the Academy’s Wolf Theatre at the Saban Media Center on Wednesday, May 24. The awards show will be available to view online via live stream at TelevisionAcademy.com/CTA.
“Our goal with the CTAs is to honor the exceptional work of these diverse students and leverage our platform to spotlight the next generation of creators and executives in the television industry,” said Madeline Di Nonno, chair of the Television Academy Foundation. “We congratulate our nominees on their outstanding achievements and look forward to their continued successes.”
In addition, winners of two special awards were announced: the Mister Rogers Memorial Scholarship competition and the Loreen Arbus Focus on Disability Award. The Mister Rogers Scholarship is a project-based award and is underwritten by EY, a global leader in professional services. It is given to rising and graduating seniors and graduate students working on projects in children’s media and pursuing a career that furthers the values and principles of Fred Rogers’ work. The Loreen Arbus Focus on Disability Award is presented in partnership with the Loreen Arbus Foundation to the student project that best portrays disability topics and issues. Winners of these awards will be presented at the May 24 College Television Awards.
The College Television Awards is a nationwide competition recognizing excellence in student work and spotlighting an inclusive group of talented storytellers and content creators who aspire to careers in the entertainment industry. All nominees and pre-announced award winners attend a two-day television summit prior to the awards, featuring a hands-on professional development experience and access to many of the industry’s top executives and innovators. They also become Television Academy Foundation alumni and are able to network and benefit from ongoing programs and offerings.
