PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State University communications student Liza Case won the Student Award at the Northwest Regional Emmy Awards ceremony held in Seattle in June.
Case’s award was for an instructional video she made as a class project in an advanced television production course at WSU’s Edward R. Murrow School of Communication. The five-minute video offers suggestions on the proper care of goldfish. It won Best of Show at the 1998 Walter Paisley International Film Festival in Moscow, Idaho, in April.
This is the second award-winning video Case has produced this year. In March, her video “What Will Death Be Like,” which featured music by English composer Momus, won second place in the music category at the National Student Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. Her prizes included trips to Hollywood and the Cannes Film Festival, as well as $1,000 and film stock.
A fall-semester screening of both videos is planned at WSU.
Case, from Lynnwood, Wash., is pursuing a degree in communication and also works as a broadcast technician at KWSU Television. She formerly served as president of the WSU student television station, Cable 8.
The regional Emmys Awards competition is sponsored by the Seattle Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and encompasses TV stations in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska.
