Hopi High radio club raising funds for radio conference trip to Atlanta
The Hopi High School radio club is raising money so they can attend the National Federation of Broadcasters meeting in Atlanta, Georgia from March 26-29.
The radio club is attempting to raise $14,000 so they can send 16 students and three chaperones to attend the national radio conference.
The trip will cost approximately $1,000 each for airfare, hotel, food and other amenities. Hopi High School will match any money that the club raises.
The Hopi High School radio class performs the only live remote Native American high school show in the nation from 2-2:30 p.m. on Thursdays when the radio club members interview teachers, administrators, community members and classmates on KUYI.
KUYI is the Hopi community radio station. The students work closely with Station Manager Kathy Sahmie and KUYI radio personality Davis Maho.
The radio students also telephone in news briefs to KINO in Winslow as they work closely with owner/manager Loy Engelhardt.
Two students, Paul and Povi Lomayaoma, have been given scholarships to attend the NFCB conference.
Those donating $50 or more will have sponsorships mentioned during the Hopi High Teen Show.
Students attending the conference benefit by meeting students from other radio stations throughout the country and learning more about radio techniques.
Checks should be made out to the Hopi High Radio Club and mailed to P.O. Box 337, Keams Canyon, AZ 86034.
