Real-life Emmys! Have you ever been nominated for an Emmy? I didn't think so.

The awards are April 11th, so keep your fingers crossed. The awards ceremony will follow a panel discussion on how to plot a career in television news. Panelists include the news directors from all four local stations in Nashville: WKRN, WSMV, News Channel 5 and Fox 17

Pearl-Cohn students and their teachers are working on a website to display these wonderful works, but in the meantime you can see a sneak preview of the "LIFT EVERY VOICE" video right here.
