‘Make the call, win it all’ at KMSU Auction

The Minot State University Program of Broadcasting will host its 18th annual KMSU Auction Dec. 8. The auction will air live on public access Channel 19 at 6:30 p.m., with a preshow starting at 5 p.m. Bids will be accepted by phone at that time at (701)858-4019.

The KMSU Auction fundraises for scholarships and equipment for the MSU broadcasting program. Past events have raised over $20,000 with 10 percent given to charitable causes. This year, the beneficiary is the Domestic Violence Crisis Center.

“The auction is not only fun, but we’re learning future job skills because we are involved in every aspect of the event, from the beginning planning to the actual live show,” said James Nora, broadcasting major. “Most importantly, we are helping women and children in need.”

KMSU promotes local businesses through various media in exchange for donations and then organizes them into packages to be auctioned off in a QVC-style format. Viewers call to place on-air bids during the allotted time, with the highest bid winning the package. The MSU broadcasting students plan, organize, produce and promote this unique television auction.
