Plainview-Old Bethpage TV Media Program Shines At 2024 BASH Awards

The Plainview-Old Bethpage TV Media Program, under the guidance of technology teacher Caryn McCarroll, achieved remarkable success at the 2024 Broadcast Awards for Senior High held at Hofstra University on May 21. Competing against nearly 1,000 students from 50 districts across Long Island and Westchester, the talented video production students brought home two trophies and an honorable mention, showcasing their exceptional skills and creativity.

BASH, founded by the Southold School District in 2017, is an annual celebration of student broadcast journalism and video production. The BASH awards serve as both an awards ceremony and a learning conference for high school students, teachers, and school administrators involved in journalism programs and media production classes.

The POB TV Media Program was recognized in the following categories:
Third Place: #lookup PSA
Second Place: Boys Varsity Basketball Livestream
Honorable Mention: POB News Intro

“We are incredibly proud of our students’ achievements at the BASH awards,” said McCarroll. “Their hard work, dedication, and creativity have paid off, and it is gratifying to see them recognized among such talented peers. The success at BASH underscores the quality and commitment of the POB TV Media Program and highlights the exceptional talent of our students. We look forward to seeing their continued success in future competitions and endeavors.”
