Ernest Pierce attends the 37th Annual College Television Awards


The College Television Awards, formerly known as the Student Television Awards, was started in 1978 by a partnership between Foundation Board members Lynne Gross and Frank O’Connor, and oil man Herbert Schmertz, to recognize excellence in student work. The first Mobil-sponsored Awards ceremony was held at the Directors Guild on October 25, 1979, where six awards were handed out in two categories — the Eric Sevareid Information Program and Rod Serling Entertainment Program. Since then, the ceremony has grown to a nationwide competition that awards over 65 trophies in multiple categories.

Designed to emulate the Emmy judging process, entries are reviewed by active Television Academy members. Students submit their pieces through an online platform and undergo a three-round judging process. Ernest Pierce joined the Academy in judging these rising stars and tonight was the annual ceremony to acknowledge these amazing talented creators in their respective fields.
