DO-IT Video Director and UWTV Win Emerald City Awards

Laura Levitin-Wilson, DO-IT operations manager

Video director Charlie Hinckley won an Emerald City Award for video productions in the Motivation under $20,000 category for Finding Gold: Hiring The Best and the Brightest. This videotape is designed to help employers and staff in cooperative education, internship, and work-based learning programs fully include participants with disabilities. It was funded by a U.S. Department of Education grant (#H078C0047-97) that supports DO-IT CAREERS. Julie Smallman is the coordinator of this three-year project. The award winning video is available from DO-IT for $25.

The 17th Annual Emerald City Awards were presented by the Seattle Chapter of the International Television Association. Each year producers and production companies from across the Northwest, from Oregon to Alaska and from Washington to Montana, submit video productions for the Emerald City Awards. Most entries are industrial and corporate in-house production facilities and educational and government production organizations. The hundreds of entries this year included those from American Production Services, Pinnacle Studios, Boeing Video Services, Caribiner International, Microsoft Studios, Safeco, TVW, Washington State University, Screaming Flea Productions, Talking Dog Media, The Bon Marché and Flying Rhino.

DO-IT thanks Charlie Hinckley and UWTV production and engineering for helping DO-IT consistently produce outstanding educational programs.
