Freshmen Create Commercial for KSDK’s App

Ladue School’s Broadcast Technology program has partnered with St. Louis Public Schools, Gateway STEM High School and KSDK News Channel 5, for the past 15 years offering students from city and country schools a collaborative opportunity to create a Public Service Announcement. This year 7 students from Ladue and 8 students from Gateway STEM participated in the program.

Ladue Schools freshmen students Nikan Askari and Jamie Korenblat were a part of this year’s winning collaborative team, along with two students Gateway STEM.
