2014 PSA Project Finalists

WOBURN – Five student-produced videos from four local school districts have been selected as finalists in the 2014 PSA Project, hosted Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, Inc.

As part of the 6th annual PSA Project, middle and high school students were invited to create original 30 to 60 second Public Service Announcements under the theme “CommUnity Involves You,” an effort to encourage students to be engaged and active members of their school and larger community.

Approximately 130 students participated and 33 student videos were submitted. All entries were reviewed and the finalists were chosen by a panel of judges that included educators, law enforcement, and staff from the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.

“I am so proud of the work of Middlesex County students in creating these videos,” District Attorney Ryan said. “All of the entries were creative in their interpretation of this year’s theme. We wanted students to think about their role in their community, both inside and outside of school. Each of the finalists was successful in using that message. The PSA Project, and its companion, the Poster Project, have been successful ever year because students are great communicators. When students create the message they can motivate their peers and effect change.”

Over the coming weeks, the five finalists’ videos will be presented at local middle and high schools where students will vote to select the winner.

The finalists are:

Somerville High School, Somerville: Community Hallway

Nashoba Valley Technical High School, Westford: CommUnity N

ashoba Valley Technical High School, Westford: Take Time to Get Involved

Ottoson Middle School, Arlington: Get Involved

Melrose High School, Melrose: Helping is Contagious
