Los Angeles, CAThe Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation hosted its 32nd College Television Awards on Saturday, April 9, 2011, honoring the nation’s best student-produced work in video, digital and film production.

The $4,000 Seymour Bricker Family Humanitarian Award was presented to Allison Leger for her work on Underground, a fictional musical short that follows the journey of Civil War Era spiritual slaves fighting insurmountable odds to find the Underground Railroad. The film also won first place in the competition’s Best Use of Music category.

Primetime Emmy Award-winner Jane Lynch (Glee) presented the night’s first Visionary Award — which recognizes the use of television to affect social change—to Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuk, while Terrence Howard (Law & Order: Los Angeles) presented the other Visionary Award to the Entertainment Industry Foundation, represented by President and CEO Lisa Paulsen.
