Lake Land College students place at Broadcasters Association Student Silver Dome Awards

Posted on October 9, 2019

Four Lake Land College students received awards at the annual Illinois Broadcasters Association’s Student Silver Dome Award Competition held on Sept. 20 at Illinois State University. The awards took place in conjunction with the Illinois Broadcasters Association annual student conference.

Michael Mriscin, Mattoon, won first place in Best Sales Presentation. Dylan Smith, Charleston, won second place in Best Radio Longform Entertainment Programming. Kaleb Reed, Charleston, and Mriscin placed third in Best Radio Recorded Promotion.

Student work for the competition is completed throughout the semester through class assignments. Placing at the awards competition is difficult with an entry of more than 200 student broadcasters from across the state each year and 21 competitive categories in radio, television and multi-media.

“Students are competing with numerous two-year and four-year institutions throughout the state, and Lake Land College students continue to bring home awards each year,” Greg Powers, speech communication/broadcasting instructor, said. “We’re excited about the award-winning work students produce here at Lake Land College.”
