NASHVILLE — The best video projects that students from Metro Nashville Public Schools have to offer were celebrated Thursday, April 10, at the third annual Academies of Nashville Video Awards Show.

The unique partnership between Metro Schools and MTSU began three years ago when the university agreed to be the title sponsor for the show.

“We are pleased to partner with Metro Schools because we see the great things happening in their schools and the caliber of students they are sending to college,” said Dr. Sidney A. McPhee, president of MTSU.

Students from the Department of Electronic Media Communication at MTSU produced the show. The entire student-run production used MTSU’s $1.2 million state-of–the-art production truck. The awards show was held at Trevecca-Nazarene University.
