Six programs created by MCPS Television received Telly awards honoring high quality productions addressing a range of topics, from the challenges of playing lacrosse to learning algebra with The Math Dude.
Boys and Girls Lacrosse, a recipient of the top prize in the sports programming category, explores the game and the demands it places on students. Players strive to achieve on the field and in the classroom and must rely upon each other to manage both the athletic and academic challenges.
Other awards were for The Math Dude algebra instructional series, a documentary on the Japanese American experience during World War II, and feature stories on Poolesville High School’s magnet programs and the Montgomery County Fire Sciences Academy.
