Tulsa Community and Technical College students captured the top prize in the state’s state school competition Wednesday when they were crowned champions of the Tulsa Community Television Series competition.
The students, led by Kameron Burdette, won the state title, earning $25,000 in cash prizes, which were split between the students and a Tulsa Community Community College student.
The winner also received $1,000.
The award is the second time this year that the students have won the title.
The students also won $10,000 each for the Tulsa Business Association and Tulsa Economic Development Corp.
The Tulsa Community TV Series was created in 2010 by TCEB students to showcase their talents in community television programming.
They are also known for their work on The View.
The series follows a diverse group of students and their efforts to help create a safer and more prosperous community.
The Tulsa Television Program team also includes former members of the school’s football team, football coach Tony Rizzo, and other community leaders.
