telly.pngWEST PALM BEACH — And for the fifth straight year, the winner is … The Education Network! The Palm Beach County School District’s station, The Education Network, has been honored with its seventh Telly Award, from among nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries. The award — in the information category for The Eighth Wonder of the World: Henry Flagler’s Over-Sea Railroad — is considered  a sign of creative excellence.

The Eighth Wonder of the World, which can be seen at, documents Flagler’s railroad construction project that connected Miami to Key West.

The seven year effort was literally and figuratively groundbreaking because the islands of the Florida Keys had to be connected by railroad bridges, the longest span measuring seven miles.

The Telly Awards program was founded in 1979 and is considered the premier award honoring outstandling local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs, video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films.

During the past five years The Education Network has also received two Emmy nominations and an Emmy Award.

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, executive director of the awards. “The Education Network’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
