AHS Students Place First in Broadcasting Competition

Arkansas High School Razorback TV students traveled to Springfield, Missouri to compete in the Academy of Scholastic Broadcasting (ASB) 4-State Competition held at Drury University. The ASB 4-State is an intense two-day competition for video, film, and broadcasting students. Over twenty teams participated, and this is the first year that the competition was held since the COVID-19 pandemic.

ASB helps broadcast teachers and students learn more about the broadcast profession. During the competition, students must create projects within a limited time, and they must rely on fellow teammates to complete their projects – teachers are only allowed to advise students during the process.

Arkansas High School students Carly Irvin and Ava Price-Gentry finished in First Place in the Roving Reporter Novice category. Kabrean King, Bella Summerson, Gaby Fowler, and Dalton Hagood were Third Place in the Anchor Team – Varsity category.
