Congratulations to GCTV for winning Third Place in BEST School News Package at The Broadcast Awards for Senior High (BASH)

On May 15th, Glen Cove High School GCTV won third place in BEST School News Package at the Broadcast Awards for Senior High (BASH). Seniors Rodni Leftwich and Ornella Datkhayeva won for their news coverage of the recent Tree of Inspiration installation at the high school. 

BASH is an annual celebration of student broadcast journalism and video production founded by Southold School District in 2017. BASH is part awards ceremony and part learning conference for Long Island high school students, teachers and school administrators involved in high school journalism programs and media production classes.

Overall, BASH is an exciting event that brings together the best and brightest young journalists in high school, and provides them with a unique opportunity to showcase their talents and gain valuable experience in the broadcast industry. The event is a testament to the talent and hard work of these young journalists, and we cannot wait to see what they will accomplish in the future.

“It was a great day for all involved  and we are so proud of the hard work and dedication shown by these young journalists. Thanks to everyone involved in  making this event a success - the kids did an amazing job!” said Chris Barry, TV production and journalism teacher.
