St. Mary’s High School Students Learn Media Skills

Storm Lake St. Mary’s High School students participated with Buena Vista University’s Digital Media Department’s hands-on media workshop “Harnessing Your Storytelling Superpowers.”

The students worked alongside BVU faculty-student teams to produce in BVU’s new high definition television studio, record radio public service announcements and went live on KBVU 97.5 FM and took photos with DSLR cameras and edited them for web stories. Additionally, if high school students applied for the BVU digital media program, they were eligible to interview for scholarships.
