An announcement from the Holmdel TV & Film Society
The Holmdel TV & Film Society won a 2011 Telly Award for the weekly news show “The Hornet Report.”
The Hornet Report featured an in-depth interview with Tom Fontana, a former pro tennis player who also has children in the Holmdel School District.
The show also covered events at Barnes and Noble, award ceremonies by Principal William Loughran and Supervisor of Athletics Randy Westrol, chorus presentations and other Holmdel events.
The 2010-2011 TV & Film Society, headed by President Monika Marciszewski and Advisor David Kaiserman, was proud to win this prestigious award. They attribute the success of the program to all the members of the Society who worked hard every week and put in countless hours above and beyond what an after school club requires.
According to the Telly Award website, “the Telly Awards honor the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web.
The 32nd Annual Telly Awards received over 11,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents.”
This Award adds to the Society’s collection of awards for a separate video program, “Don’t Press Send Until Your Ride Ends,” a public service announcement about texting while driving that won a different award at the state level.
In addition, the Society has previously won Telly Awards for an earlier news show “Baseball Primetime,” headed by students who have since graduated.
The Society plans to also win awards and accolades for this years improved news show as well.
