SDPB TV Nominated for Six Regional Emmy Awards

Last Updated by SDPB on

SDPB is proud to announce six nominations for 2015 Upper Midwest Regional Emmy Awards. We’d like to extend congratulations to all of the talented staff who earned this recognition, and thank all the supporters who make this programming possible. 

The nominees and their respective categories are listed below. 

Temples of Justice — Documentary (Historical)

The SDPB-original documentary Temples of Justice takes an in-depth look at the roles the railroads, local leaders and communities played in the often contentious process of selecting a county seat, as well as at the artistry and architecture of the buildings themselves. For more information and interactive features, check out www.SDPB.org/templesofjustice.


Dakota Life — Magazine

Dakota Life is our long-running video magazine on the people and places that make South Dakota great. In this episode, we uncover everything from an earth church, to the sky, to amazing eyes. Discover how a Vermillion woman — legally blind for decades — can see again, learn how much work it takes to keep a century old brown earth church open, hear stories of WWI vets courtesy of a Clark County woman, and explore South Dakota’s high flying role in the Civil Air Patrol.

 
A Day in South Dakota — Magazine

On ‘World Photo Day’ — August 19th, 2014 — we invited you to capture in photographs what being South Dakotan means to you, and share the images with us. A Day in South Dakota looked at some of the many reasons we love our state during the year we celebrated the 125th anniversary of statehood. 
 
 
Inspiring Dreams – Promotion: Program – Single Spot

As a third grader, South Dakota Anna Lena Wonnenberg entered her essay, “Butterfly Friends” — about her dreams of traveling the world — in an SDPB/Reading Rainbow contest. Her world view expanded when her missionary parents first began serving in southern Africa. She now teaches English at a village school in Junik, Kosovo, as a Peace Corps volunteer.

 
Landscapes of South Dakota — Promotion: Program – Single Spot

As South Dakota marked 125 years of statehood, SDPB went on a journey to rediscover our state's unique identity. Between June, 2014 and May, 2015, we traveled the state looking for and sharing South Dakota stories on SDPB TV, Radio, and via SDPB.org, where all of our "Landscapes" clips, features, and pictures will be archived online for anytime viewing and listening. 

 
Winning Team — Sports – Program Story (Outside of News)

Connor Henze is a talented basketball player from Elk Point-Jefferson High School. On the court, however, Connor is completely deaf. Winning Team is about how Connor, his interpreter Jennie Claus, and the Elk Point-Jefferson basketball team work together to make something remarkable happen.


Winners will be announced at the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences 2015 Upper Midwest Regional Emmy Awards Gala, October 3rd in Bloomington, Minnesota. You can see the full list of nominees here.
