Finalists from Woburn, Malden, Somerville and Melrose named in 2016 PSA Project
The District Attorney’s PSA Project was created with Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, Inc., to spark a dialogue among teens and to include teens in the conversation on issues such as healthy relationships, substance abuse, and impaired driving.
The goal of this year's theme, “Write the Story You Want to Tell”, is to empower students to reflect on who they are and who they want to become. Self-discovery, confidence, goal-setting and good decision making are important components of writing your own story - the story only you can tell. The overarching goal of the 2016 PSA Project is for students to communicate a direct, positive voice to other teens.
Finalists in the 2016 PSA Project were:
Woburn Memorial High School: “Look Up”
Malden High School: “Journey to Success”
Somerville High School: “Be a Friend”
Melrose High School: “Notebook”
Entries were viewed and finalists were selected by a panel of school personnel, law enforcement officials and staff from the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office and Middlesex Partnerships for Youth. The five PSA finalists were shown to more than 1,200 middle and high school students throughout Middlesex County in classrooms and assemblies where students cast their votes to select a winner.
