MARC PSA Contest Guidelines (Grades 6-12 in Massachusetts)
A Public Service Announcement (“PSA”) is, in essence, a video commercial designed to raise awareness or change attitudes, rather than to sell a product. Examples of previous Public Service Announcements are:
Students in schools should form groups of 2 to 12 students, and those groups should together produce a Public Service Announcement video. That production must be designed to raise awareness and improve other teenagers’ attitudes around the issues of aggression and bullying in school.
may be anything that students consider would be effective in raising awareness
about bullying and aggression among teens. We hope to offer the winning team a
limousine to escort them to the Awards Ceremony. Winning schools, supervising
adults, and others are welcome and the students’ families will also be invited.
Productions must be turned into MARC by February 23, 2015
Submissions should be
sent to: PSA Contest, Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center, Bridgewater
State University, Bridgewater, MA 02325.
