Chloe McLean, an 11th-grade student at East Ridge High School in Clermont, won two EMMY® Awards last weekend for her work on The Outsiders Club, a Florida-based television show produced by Crawford Entertainment. The Suncoast Regional Emmy Awards were held at the Rosen Centre in Orlando on Saturday, Dec. 2.
The Outsiders Club is a 30-minute program that airs on primarily on ABC affiliates throughout Florida. It stars kids who explore the great outdoors and model ways to pursue a healthier, more active, nature-connected lifestyle. Each episode is set in a Florida State Park and features an outdoor adventure such as camping, fishing, kayaking or hiking. Additionally, the program’s “Nutritional Moments” provide fun, easy tips on staying healthy while adventuring outdoors.
The Outsiders Club TV Series: Season 2 won in the “Children/Youth/Teens – Program” category. The Outsiders Club TV Series Featuring Geocaching & The Farm to School Program won in the “Education/Schools – Program” category.
Chloe, 16, hosted a farm-to-school episode where she visited a potato farm and corn field in southeast Florida and showed, hands-on, how local, fresh produce is making its way into a Florida elementary school cafeteria.
