UCLA fetes 5 student scribes

The UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television has presented screenwriting awards to five students for work completed during the 1996-97 professional program in screenwriting.

Honored with cash awards were:

Gabriella Aratow, for her adventure-comedy, “The Glass Harmonica”; Jeff Bacon, for the teen drama “Gridiron”; Barbara Covington for the time travel-themed “Moments in Time”; Eduard Ersolvas for “Crazy Man Michael,” a coming-of-age story set in the ’60s; and Dan Williams for the college drama “Close Enough to Perfect.”
