EAST LANSING, Mich. – Nov. 10 – A trio of MHSAA members involved in its School Broadcast Program have been named recipients of grants from the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association to purchase equipment for their broadcasting programs.

Lake Orion ($1,921), Negaunee ($1,471) and Rogers City ($1,471) High Schools were three of six schools to receive grants from the DSBA, which will be used to purchase audio and video equipment.  Check presentations to each school will take place at a future date.

In its seventh year, the School Broadcast Program gives members an opportunity to showcase excellence in their schools by  creating video programming of athletic and non-athletic events; with students gaining skills in announcing, camera operation, directing/producing and graphics. 

The program also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.
