Three Cedarville University students traveled to Nashville, Tenn., over their spring break where they competed and won first place in a 36-hour audio challenge at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention.

Competing against groups from other universities, the students had 36 hours to complete several assignments, which included stages of conceptualizing, scripting, editing, and mixing.

"We didn't know what to expect," said freshman Nina Prozzo. "We weren't given any instructions until the start of the competition." Throughout the 36 hours, students gained hands-on experience with ideas and skills acquired from their Cedarville classes such as Audio Production, Advanced Audio Production, and Writing for Electronic Media. "It was an excellent experience, and I can’t wait to do it again next year."
