Becker places 2nd in Statewide Radio Production Contest
An Eastern Illinois University Communication Studies major has been awarded second place in a statewide radio production contest.
Monica Becker (senior from Bartlett) placed second in the 2011 Be a Buckle Buddy Radio PSA contest. The contest requires students to produce a radio public service announcement to promote the Be a Buckle Buddy child safety program. The contest was sponsored by the Illinois Department of Transportation and Children's Hospital of Illinois.
This was the second statewide honor received by Monica Becker in 2011. Earlier in the year, she was named as a finalist in the Best New Ad contest, for a PSA that promoted the Donate Life Illinois organ donation program.
