Oyster Bay Senior Earns Second Place In National Student Competition

Oyster Bay High School senior Kyra Sansone was recently awarded second place in the division II news story category of the 2023 Student Television Network Fall Nationals. Sansone was recognized for her news story, “Senior Parking Problems” which she produced in Alex Dollin’s digital reporting class.
High school students from across the country submitted their best work from the fall semester into the contest and submissions were scored and critiqued by industry professionals. Sansone’s video highlighted Oyster Bay High School’s senior parking lot. She planned out the video, shot her own b-roll and conducted interviews with students and building administrators.
The judges applauded Sansone for her “really nice visuals” and thought she told her story well.
“You had some great perspectives in this piece,” they said in their feedback.
As a result of her second place win, Sansone will receive a plaque from the Student Television Network and a certificate in the coming weeks. The Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District congratulates her on this great achievement.
