Telecom students have received a Telly Award for their 2012 production of "Every 15 Minutes," the national program that warns of the dangers of driving while impaired in a highly graphic and unforgettable way: a simulated fatal auto accident involving students.

According to its website, the Telly Awards "honors the very best film and video productions, groundbreaking online video content, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs."

Over 13,000 entries from ad agencies, production companies, TV stations, cable companies, interactive agencies and corporations are received annually.

"Every 15 Minutes" was held at Warwick High School May 3 and 4. Telecom students and staff, along with Woodside Communications Magnet students and staff, recorded, produced and edited the event for DVD. Viewing the DVD is part of Day Two of the program.
