2013 FNC College Challenge Winners
Hofstra University School of Communication students Shannan Ferry ’14, Julia Skrobak ’14, and Megan Corcoran ’13 have been selected as the winners of this year’s Fox News Channel College Challenge earning them a $10,000 scholarship that will be shared equally. The School of Communication will receive a gift of $10,000.
The contest required applicants to create a compelling video news package examining a current issue. The students’ winning submission looked at a movement to ban the iconic horse carriage from New York City streets, and included interviews with carriage drivers, tourists, movement organizers and local politicians. Shannan served as on-air reporter, while Julia was producer and Megan was videographer and editor.
Megan, who is graduating this month, will also be able to interview for an entry-level position with Fox News Network, while Shannan and Julia are eligible for summer internships there.
