The College Television Awards is a nationwide competition that recognizes “excellence in college student produced video, digital and film production.”

Past winners have found the awards a ticket into Hollywood’s fast lane. Shane Acker‘s College Television Award-winning short film “9” was later produced into a full length film by Tim Burton.  Nickelodeon snagged Jorge Gutierrez‘s “El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera,” which went on to win an Emmy.

This year, “So You Think You Can Dance’s” Nigel Lythgoe will be honored and “Dancing With the Stars” Tom Bergeron will host for the fourth consecutive year.

Other TV celeb presenters include Paris Barclay (“In Treatment”), Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community”), Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”), Hill Harper (“CSI: NY”), Gillian Jacobs (“Community”), Tim Kang (“The Mentalist”),

Jim Parsons (“The Big
Bang Theory”),
Benito Martinez (“The Shield”), Amanda Righetti (“The Mentalist”), Kerr Smith (“Life Unexpected”), Jon Tenney (“The Closer”) and the cast of the MTV’s “The Buried Life.”
