The Ruby Kate Wells Memorial Award was given to Mr. Todd Shalz and Mrs. Lori West to use for the Mark Twain News video announcements.  The award is a grant that will be used to take the video announcements crew on a field trip to Kansas City to tour KSHB-TV to see how professional journalists prepare newscasts and to help buy equipment for MTN.
