Lane Zyvoloski, an MSUM junior and a Campus News reporter last spring, has been named a national finalist in the College Broadcasters Inc. National Student Production Contest. College Broadcasters, Inc. is a national organization that represents students involved in radio, television, webcasting and other related media. Her piece titled “Mandala” is one of four finalists in the Best News Reporting category. Senior Kaitlyn Teske was the photographer for the report.

“Mandala” is a story about Tibetan monks who visited NDSU to create a sand mandala. It took them more than four days to construct the multicolored symbol of peace. Zyvoloski was recently awarded a National Television Arts and Sciences

Student Television Award for Excellence in the Arts and Entertainment/Cultural Affairs category for the same story.
