A Chance to Earn $1000 for a Video Describing Your Job in Broadcasting

Working in broadcasting is one of the most exciting and fulfilling career paths imaginable. You can make a difference in your local community by keeping people informed on current events, bringing them live sports, highlighting local businesses, and curating genre-specific music shows. It’s a profession with a great deal of humanity. NYSBA wants to encourage the next generation to enter the profession.

Just send us a video describing why you enjoy working in local broadcasting. If we select and use your video for our college outreach campaign, we will send you a check for $1,000 (One Thousand Dollars). Payment will be limited only to those videos actually used by NYSBA. Videos will be placed on our website and our social media platforms. The decision to use your video rests solely with NYSBA, and all decisions are final. You must be employed by a radio or television station that is a NYSBA member in good standing and licensed by the FCC to a community in New York State. All submitted videos become the property of NYSBA. Selected applicants will be asked to provide written permission for us to use the video as a condition for receiving payment.

Feel free to create the video using professional equipment or even the camera on your mobile phone. The deadline for submitting videos is January 30, 2024.
