KTCA PRODUCTIONS ARE DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS FINALISTS

 ST. PAUL, Minn., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Two KTCA-TV national productions, "Higher Goals" and "Newton's Apple," were nominated for the 1992-93 20th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards announced in New York and Los Angeles by the Academy of Television Art & Sciences (ATAS) and the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), joint presenters of this year's awards.
 "Higher Goals," which features Detroit Pistons' superstar Isiah Thomas and Tim Meadows of "Saturday Night Live," was nominated in the Children's Special category. The half-hour PBS television special encourages young people with professional sports dreams to focus first on their education. Through the real life stories of two young high school basketball players, the program shows that the skills of practice and discipline, which stimulate success in sports and other activities, can also be applied to academics.
 "Higher Goals" is a co-production of Kartemquin Educational Films in Chicago and KTCA-TV, St. Paul/Minneapolis, and was made possible by a major grant from Toyota, with additional funding from the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Knight Foundation, AT&T, Woods Charitable Trust and John Rogers.
 "Newton's Apple" was nominated in the Graphics and Title Design category for its 10th Anniversary Graphics. The Emmy Award-winning PBS family science series is produced by KTCA-TV, and features host David Heil, field reporter Peggy Knapp and naturalist Nancy Gibson. "Newton's Apple" is made possible by 3M.
 Winners of the 1992-93 Daytime Emmy Awards will be broadcast from the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on Wednesday, May 26, 8 to 10 p.m. central time on the ABC Television Network, locally on KSTP-TV, Channel 5.
