Rocky Mountain Emmy for Chris Scheuler and C&J

Looks like that darn Chris Scheuler has won another award.

As reported in the NM Business Weekly..............................

A documentary project by the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women has earned a national award.

"Girls: Challenges/Choices," was recognized by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with the Rocky Mountain Emmy in the category of public/current/community affairs program or special.

The documentary focused on issues of body image, dating violence, depression, teen pregnancy and substance abuse among New Mexico teenage girls. It was broadcast on KOAT-TV, Channel 7 on June 12, 2006.

The film was produced by Christopher Productions and co-sponsored by the N.M. Children, Youth and Families Department, the Public Education Department, the New Mexico Department of Health, ValueOptions and the McCune Charitable Foundation.

We're especially happy because Chris employed a team of students from the UNM Communication and Journalism Department to help make it happen.
