The series was nominated in the Emmy category: Category 10C Community/Cable/Public Access Television – Edited Program: Sports, News or Entertainment. It is one of twelve nominated in this category.
Emmy winners will be announced at an awards gala September 26th in Minneapolis.
Cottage Grove Mayor Myron Bailey says this about the nomination, “the City Council and I want to express our excitement to the South Washington County Telecommunications Producers, the Yeshiva School and our Human Rights/Human Services Commission on this honorable and distinguished nomination for an Emmy.
“We have always felt our local cable group was “top notch” and this nomination shows everyone we are right! We look forward to the night when the winners will be announced. We wish them good luck.”
