On April 4, 2018, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced the recipients of the 2018 New England Regional High School Production Awards (informally known as student Emmy Awards.)
Students were honored for excellence in broadcast journalism, sports broadcasting, and video production. Members of Fairhaven High School’s Media Production Program were awarded three prestigious New England Student Awards and recognized with an additional eight honorable mentions.
Fairhaven High School was one of the top schools recognized in the New England region. Pinkerton Academy (Pinkerton, NH) also received three awards.
