South Dakota Public Television receives 2 Emmy nominations South Dakota Public Television has been nominated for two Regional Emmys for a program, Prairie Days: A Dakota Life Special; and for promotion for the World War II Memorial Dedication.
Prairie Days received its nomination in the Magazine category while the World War II Memorial Dedication on-air promotion was nominated in the Non-News Promotion � Campaign. The nominations came from the Minnesota chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Winners will be announced on Saturday, Oct. 5, in Golden Valley, MN.
This is the third consecutive year in which SDPTV has received an Emmy nomination. The network won Emmy awards in 2000 and 2001. Emmy awards recognize outstanding achievement, encourage the pursuit of excellence and promote high quality programs.
"When you consider that the Midwest Regional Emmy awards puts our work in direct competition with much larger stations from much larger markets, it's truly an honor to have our work judged as worthy of these awards," said Bob Bosse, SDPTV's director of television. "Our viewers have always told us that they admire the quality of our work, but it's nice to have that quality noticed by our peers also."
Prairie Days: A Dakota Life Special is a lively one-hour program celebrating South Dakota's rich heritage through five unique events held across in the state. The five festivals, representing America's melting pot, bring together customs and traditions from the pioneers who settled the land long ago to the Native Americans who traveled before them.
The promotion campaign for the South Dakota World War II Memorial Dedication encouraged viewers to remember South Dakota's contributions to World War II and watch coverage of the dedication in Pierre last September.
