Student wins ‘Award of Excellence’ for working on cooking show

Lauren Johnson on the Show-Me Chefs set
Lauren Johnson was nervous about getting involved in productions until she got an unexpected call. As a senior media, journalism and film major at Missouri State University, it was her dream to work on a project like Show-Me Chefs.

It not only came true, but she also won an award of excellence for her work.

“Telling stories has always been my passion,” said Johnson, now a graduate student in the producing and screenwriting program. “I’m happy to say that for the last couple of years at Missouri State, I have gotten that opportunity on multiple occasions.”

Johnson was the head editor of the promotional video for Show-Me Chefs, a broadcast/webcast cooking competition television show produced in Springfield, Missouri by MSU’s department of media, journalism and film. The show features culinary talent from the Show-Me State.

She received the award at the Broadcast Education Association’s Festival of Media Arts 2017 competition.


At this year’s festival, MSU students won 17 awards for different projects. For more details about the awards, see the media, journalism and film blog.
