The annual competition to select student judges for the Peabody Awards program is now underway. The Peabody Award, begun in 1940, is the most prestigious honor in the broadcasting and cable field. The awards program is administered by the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. A limited number of students will be selected to serve as student members of the faculty/staff/student screening committees, which make recommendations to the Peabody Awards Board.
WHO MAY BE A STUDENT JUDGE?
Any student officially enrolled in any of the major degree programs in the College of Journalism and Mass Communication and who will not graduate before May 2013 is eligible to be selected as a student judge. Juniors, Seniors and Graduate students (MA/Ph.D.) are eligible, pre-journalism (Arts and Sciences) students are not eligible. Juniors, seniors and graduate students from outside the College of Journalism may apply, provided they have relevant media experience. However, preference is granted to students enrolled in the Grady College.
WHEN DOES JUDGING OCCUR?
Each screening committee will review between 30 and 60 programs. Judging will begin in late January, 2013 with recommendations due to the Peabody office by mid-late February.
IS THIS A PAID POSITION?
Student judges will receive a free ticket to the Peabody Awards banquet in New York City on May 20, 2013. Financial assistance for students attending the banquet may be available through the Sherman Memorial Travel Fund.
HOW ARE STUDENT JUDGES SELECTED?
Applications are available from secretaries in departmental offices, Advising Office and from Tom Hoover or Danna Williams in the Peabody Office (320). Application deadline is Friday, October 5, 2012. Students selected in the preliminary round of competition will be notified of their selection by Friday, October 12. Applications are screened by Telecom faculty, and finalists will be required to attend a meeting on Tuesday, October 30, 2012, at 3:30 p.m. in the Miller Learning Center, room 150, at which time sample programs will be screened for review and critique. Students will be selected on the basis of these critiques and will be notified of their selection as Peabody student judges before Thanksgiving break. Judging committees will be formed before classes end for fall semester.
