So you’ve been saving your best stuff all year—right?
In fewer than two months, the deadline to submit your entries in the 15th annual CBI National Student Production Awards arrives. If your operation is like the one I advise, the awards deadline is a last-minute scramble to remember what we thought was good dating back to last summer, find it (a challenge in itself) and download it into the awards submission system.
Don’t let that be you.
Before final papers, final projects and final exams eat into the minimal amount of sleep time you already get, spend a few minutes now to decide and collect all of your elite material.
April is a fine month to submit your award nominations.
That way you don’t forget at the last minute about that great PSA or DJ shift or news/sports report that will generate you the even-greater resume line of “National Finalist for Best in Category in the CBI National Student Production Awards.”
If you’re new to CBI, click on the Awards link on the website to listen/watch last year’s winners (or the last several years) to hear/see what you’re up against.
Picture yourself now standing at the front of the hotel ballroom in Philadelphia. The Awards MC calls out your station as a national finalist. You walk forward in front of hundreds to accept your award with the wonderfully designed CBI logo.
That will look fantastic on your Facebook page and mom will be so proud.
