Full list of 2018 FOX61 Student News winners

EAST HARTFORD — On Wednesday, May 23, schools from all over the state gathered for the 2018 FOX61 Student news awards at Goodwin College.  Students were able to walk the red carpet, have pictures taken and meet and talk with FOX61’s Keith McGilvery and Audrey Kutchen.  Audrey participated in Student News back when she attended Daniel Hand High in Madison.

It was an exciting afternoon for all involved. We look forward to the fall, when we’ll hold a Teacher workshop to kick off the new school year on Sept. 21. For more information, email us!
