Harriton Senior Wins Media Award, Scholarship

Ameer Carter took first prize for a green-themed PSA.

Ameer Carter, a senior at Harriton High School, was the first-place winner of the 2011 NATAS Young Producer's Award, presented by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (Mid-Atlantic chapter). Carter won a $1,500 scholarship for a public service announcement he produced that shows the importance of growing trees.

Philadelphia-area television professionals were the judges of the 30-second spots, which were on the “Going Green” theme—students were challenged to create a message that would raise awareness, change opinions or motivate TV viewers to action. Carter won unanimously. It was the first time a Harriton student had entered the competition.

NATAS is the organization that hands out Emmy awards. A video of the award (3:44) presentation can be seen here.
