Wayne Hills High School Alumna Fabby Prescott Nominated by Television Academy for 42nd College Television Awards

The Foundation’s annual College Television Awards recognizes and rewards excellence in student-produced programs from colleges across the country. Winners in the competition will be announced by television stars at the red carpet awards ceremony April 1 at the Television Academy in North Hollywood, California.


Prescott, along with six classmates from Montclair State University, has been nominated in the News category for a project titled Focus: Disruption—Moving Forward. Prescott served as a director on the project, which was selected from over 132 submissions from colleges and universities nationwide by Television Academy members.

Focus: Disruption—Moving Forward is a one-hour news special from Montclair News Lab that investigates the impact of the coronavirus on college students’ lives and what it means to get back to normal. It explores how institutions and individuals are overcoming obstacles to get back to living life productively. The program is the culmination of months of reporting and production.

2023 College Television Awards nominees will also participate in a variety of professional-development activities from March 29-April 1, including a special screening of all nominated projects attended by members of the Television Academy, an industry-professionals networking breakfast, Hollywood studio visits and additional career-enhancing activities before the red carpet awards show.
Nominees and winners of the 42nd College Television Awards automatically become members of the Television Academy Foundation's alumni family, gaining access to year-round networking opportunities, events and professional development resources. Prominent College Television Awards alumni include CNN national correspondent Natasha Chen; Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan director Patricia Riggen; Maya and the Three executive producer Jorge Gutierrez; and Love, Victor executive producer Jason Ensler.
