Once again high school students across Kansas are invited to get the creative juices flowing to create a Public Service Announcement. CatchItKansas.com and the Kansas State High School Activities Association are sponsoring the competition. The top prize is having your PSA air on Kansas television stations.
KSHSAA Executive Director Gary Musselman said he was pleased with the first two competitions.
"The schools who have chosen to participate have had fun and been very creative in developing their entries. The feedback from those who have seen the PSA spots on the air has been very positive" said Musselman.
The competition gives student the opportunity to produce quality, professional looking projects that can potentially be seen by thousands of people. Joan Barrett, President and General Manager of Sunflower Broadcasting says though they are student projects, they have to follow the same production standards as the professionals.
"Technology has made it easier for students to create videos, but what is missing in many is the creativity, and attention to the message. This contest will be judged by professionals. So students have to take a more mature attitude toward their PSA", said Barrett.
Musselman agrees. "Broadcast journalism classes and radio and television production classes are becoming more popular with students in many Kansas high schools. The KSHSAA public service announcement contest is a great opportunity for students to express their creativity and talents".
Topics can be about sportsmanship, music, drama or anything that stresses the importance of getting involved in high school and setting a good example.
