OMAHA – Scholarship dollars are available for high school students who plan to earn a degree related to broadcasting and have a desire to work in media.

The Nebraska Broadcasters Association Foundation announced four Nebraska high school seniors will each be awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

“The future of local radio and television stations is of vital importance to our communities and to our democracy,” NBA Board Chairperson Ariel Roblin said. “Attracting the best and brightest to this exciting industry is a top priority for the Nebraska Broadcasters Association.
