Videographer Receives UW Extension Creative Excellence Honor
November 25, 2013 — For providing a vision and encouraging University of Wyoming Extension educators to think beyond the status quo, videographer David Keto has earned extension’s Creative Excellence Recognition Award.
Keto, who joined extension in 2011, received the award during the organization’s recent training conference in Casper. UW Extension has offices in every county and the Wind River Indian Reservation.
Nominators say Keto shares his enthusiasm for videography as a science, an art and as a teaching tool. He has encouraged and trained educators to produce their own videos through workshops and by working with educators during filming.
Keto produces extension’s “From the Ground Up” video series, which includes subjects ranging from horticulture to range management. The educational videos air on KCWY-TV Casper and are posted on YouTube at http://youtube.com/uwyoextension. He also produces videos for various departments in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and UW.
Keto received his bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and his master’s degree in science and natural history film from Montana State University.
