Erika Hahn Receives Pucky Roslansky Award
FCTV Member Erika Hahn is the 2019 recipient of the Priscilla “Pucky” Roslansky Memorial Fund Award award for her video Slow Democracy. The video documents a presentation given by author Susan Burke at the Falmouth Public Library. This is the second time Erika has won this annual award.
In 2012, the Falmouth Community Television Board of Directors established the fund. After her retirement as the research director at the Associates of Cape Cod, Priscilla “Pucky” Roslansky became an active member, producer, and supporter at Falmouth Community Television, where she made hundreds of videos on a variety of subjects including environmental, medical and other issues. FCTV named an editing studio in her honor in 2010. If she thought of a topic the town needed to better understand she promptly made a video on the subject to educate her community and improve the political discourse. She believed firmly that all politics are local and that if the people lead the leaders will follow.
The yearly award will be given to one FCTV member producer who is chosen by the selection committee based on the submission of a video program no less than 30 minutes in length which relates specifically to the Falmouth community and serves to educate or improve public discourse.
