Seniors Allison Mackey, Hannah Reichle and Avery Laluk joined with juniors Jacob Patterson and Ty Smith winning many awards for an episode they created for the Kansas State Fair broadcast competition on Friday, Sept. 14.

 The students had eight hours to put together an episode of three different stories. One was over a sea lion exhibit, one over salt water taffy, and the other was over the 100-year anniversary of the State Fair.

 Senior Hannah Reichle said that the process of creating the entry wasn’t as easy as they thought it would be.

 “Everything that could’ve gone wrong went wrong,” Reichle said. “You have to be prepared to fight for your story, to fight through the crowd, and can’t be afraid to ask people for interviews.”

 Broadcast students have won this competition two years running, so they were happy they could keep the successful tradition going, even through all the stress the State Fair brought.

 “It’s nice knowing all the hard work we put in; all the stress, all the blood, sweat and tears paid off,” Reichle said. “We were carrying on the tradition of winning the State Fair.”
