Gwinnett County Public Schools’ channel GCPS TV ended the month of June celebrating winning an EMMY award for an original production, “Love that Book—Kindness Counts.”
The Broadcast and Distance Learning team from GCPS put the project together. The Southeast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences presented GCPS team with the EMMY.
“Love That Book” was honored with the EMMY Award in the following category: “Outstanding Achievement: News and Program Specialty Excellence, for Children/Youth (12 and under) programs.”
“Our entire GCPS TV team is committed to creating and producing quality and effective programming for our district’s needs,” said Greg LaHatte, the school district’s director of broadcast and distance learning. “Receiving this award let us know we are performing at the highest of industry levels.”
“Love That Book” was created in the fall. Hosted by storyteller and New York Times best-selling children’s author Carmen Agra Deedy, each episode of “Love That Book” takes students on a reading adventure and helps them navigate a world of stories.
The series covered issues such as kindness, friendship and the importance of words. GCPS TV’s programming is streamed live at www.gcpstv.org.
