Students from the Convent of the Sacred Heart (CSH) have been honored by the Cablevision Educational Access Awareness Awards, taking home prizes in multiple categories.

The awards celebrate the efforts of middle and high school students who produce broadcast content for Cablevision’s Educational Access Channel (78). Student-produced programming from Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, Weston and Westport was considered for the regional competition, with Sacred Heart taking the top prize in the documentary, news show, and community/school story categories along with several other awards.

Today from the Heart, the school’s self-produced news program, took first in the high school news show category for the seventh straight year with a production team of Caroline Burch, Bianca Chiappelloni, Amanda Crowell, Catherine Cunningham, Catherine DeVoe, Jennifer Esposito, Shelby Holland, Yahnah Johns-Woodby, Grace Kennedy, Amy Lafleur, Grace McKenney, Christina Monaco, Natalie Ponce, Emily Sabia, Madison Sirabella, Bridget Scaturro, Jacqueline Thomas and Sydney Walker.

Grace Kennedy took both first place and second place in the community/school story designation, sharing the first place award with Esposito for Pippa Profile while partnering with Chaippelloni and Crowell for the second place D’Nea Profile. Also placing second was Mary Grace Henry and Gabrielle Giacomo’s In Time and Alana Normile’s Alone at Last, which tied for the prize in the Open Entry category. The documentary piece Searching for My Roots, produced by Aggie Ryan, Katie Hill, Grace Sutherland and Cynthia Thomas won first place in its distinction and Jessia Johnson and Gabriela Lopez’s Dream Chasers finished in third. Katie also shared a second place prize in the public service announcement category for I am a Girl, finishing just above Riley Doyle’s Drowning in Plastic.

CSH’s middle school students took home a pair of second place prizes as well, with Riley Hicks, Emma O’Connor Olivia Wise and Margo Muccia earning second place in the open entry field with Rome’s Cooking Show and Laura Holland and Zoe Butenhoff capturing third place in the Documentary category with Soccer Star Inspiries.
