RUTLAND—PEGTV recently announced that it has expanded the scope of its annual PEGTV Courcelle Scholarship to include the entire realm of visual and media arts. Two Rutland County high school seniors have the opportunity to win a $2,000 scholarship to pursue postsecondary education in all areas of television, film, radio, internet, computer animation, graphic arts, sound engineering, photo and print journalism.
The 18th annual PEGTV Courcelle Scholarship honors the memory of Joe Courcelle for his pioneering work in public access television in Rutland.
