Making the news
Maitland Middle School’s News Crew students recently returned from a national film and broadcast competition, STN (Student Television Network). This year the national conference was held in Orlando. There were more than 144 high schools and middle schools from all over the country represented. Almost half of Ms. Farber’s news crew kids attended this year. Her students competed in all eight middle school competitions and placed and/or received honorable mention in seven out of the eight contests. Maitland Middle defended their title from last year, when STN was held in Los Angeles, and continued to dominate the middle school competitions. U.S. Education TV also selected Ms. Farber’s MMS web channel as one of the top-three middle school web channels.
