SOPTV Student ShowcaseSOPTV has produced a series of local short segments that showcase exceptionally gifted students from our viewing area. The segments are not intended to be a ‘talent’ show, but demonstrate the efforts of the local teachers to enhance the talents of their students.

Peter Sage, a long-time supporter and previous board member of SOPTV, provided initial funding for the series. SOPTV appreciates the continous support of the John Wm. and Betty Long Unruh Fund at the Oregon Community Foundation for their support of Student Showcase. It is hoped that funding is found to feature students from all the counties that SOPTV serves — Jackson, Josephine, Douglas, Klamath, and Curry counties.

Season 12 Production Funding Provided By: Peter Sage, The Josephine County Cultural Coalition, The Jackson County Cultural Coalition, The Douglas County Cultural Coalition and The Oregon Cultural Trust investing in Oregon’s arts, heritage, and humanities.
