All students who attended Face Time with the Pros were invited to stick around for the Gold & Silver Circle Ceremony. For the first time NATAS-NCCB held this event on the same day as Face Time with the Pros to celebrate legends in the broadcast industry with a nod to a new generation of young adults eager to begin their careers in television. The College Student Production Awards were also given during the Ceremony.
