Town Announces 1st Annual Screenwriting Contest
Winning Script will be turned into a program on NHTV!

North Hempstead, NY –Calling aspiring screenwriters! North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board are proud to announce the First Annual North Hempstead Television (NHTV) Screenwriting Contest.

The Town is looking for screenwriters both young and old to submit original scripts that could be filmed by the Town’s television producers for a program that would air on NHTV. Scripts must be no longer than six pages, including a cover page, and suitable for general audiences. First page should include title, name and contact information. The script can be funny, serious, or a mix of both, but just needs to contain three key elements:

  • It must be filmed in the Town of North Hempstead.
  • A Town facility or park must be incorporated. (Limit to two locations)
  • The person who submits must be a resident of the Town of North Hempstead.
One script will be chosen from an age 18 and under category, and another script will be chosen from the age 18 and over category. Scripts can be emailed in a PDF format to scripts@northhempsteadny.gov. The deadline is January 15, 2015.

North Hempstead Television (NHTV) is the 24 hour a day, 7 day a week, government-run television station that airs on channels 18 and 63 on Cablevision and Channel 46 on Verizon FIOS, as well as on the web at www.mynhtv.com.
