Nine students selected for KSFY Media Camp

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - KSFY is preparing to welcome nine students from across the region for a week-long introduction to television news production.

Beginning Monday, June 10, 2019, KSFY will host its fifth annual media camp.

The free camp is held with support from the Washington Pavilion.

Students will learn about many aspects of television news, including reporting, writing, video production and advertising.

Students will wrap up their experience on Friday, June 14 by producing their own five-minute newscast, which will air at the end of KSFY News at 5:00 and KSFY News at 6:00.

Students will also work with the sales department to develop a sales plan, so they can find an advertiser to sponsor their newscast.

All students participating in the KSFY Media Camp submitted an application and a “demo tape” to show their on-camera skills.

Students were selected based on their course work in school, their audition and their interest in a future career in television.

KSFY and the Washington Pavilion hosted the first Media Camp in 2015.

The following students will be participating in the KSFY Media Camp. The list includes the grade and school they will be attending in the fall:

Riley Altman 12th Garretson
