Georgia Student Media Festival Homepage
Over one hundred media specialists, technology specialists, teachers and other educators gathered at the Georgia Public Broadcasting building in Atlanta on April 22 to participate in the 29th annual Georgia Student Media Festival. This year's festival was sponsored by The Georgia Association for Instructional Technology, an affiliate of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology and the Georgia Library Association.
Over six hundred and forty projects in eight categories were submitted. These projects were created by students in grades K - 12. Each system that submitted projects sent judges to assist with the festival. Judges came from as far away as Early County, leaving home at 2:30 A.M. to make it to GPB on time. Projects that received a superior rating are eligible to go on to the International Student Media Festival sponsored by AECT.
This is the second year that GPB has collaborated with coordinators of the GSMF to host the festival at their facility. The Education Services Department at GPB played a key role in helping before, during and after the festival. They are a wonderful group and deserve a round of applause for their hard work and support.
A sampling of some of the best of the best will be available on the Georgia Student Media Festival information web page hosted by GPB. Check the web page often for updates and information on the 2006 Georgia Student Media Festival. Thanks to everyone who participated and helped in any way.
