Choose Respect Video PSA Contest Accepting Entries
The 12th Annual Choose Respect Montgomery video PSA contest is now accepting entries. This contest challenges middle and high school students to create an original 60-second public service announcement (PSA) video to promote awareness of dating abuse and domestic violence among teens. Students will earn 10 SSL hours for the successful completion and quality submission of a PSA video. The top five videos, selected by students in secondary schools, will be awarded with prizes and viewed on the MCPS and Choose Respect Montgomery webpages.
The contest is open to students in sixth through 12th grades, and students may enter on their own or as a group. Students may only participate in one entry. The top three videos win cash prizes (first prize gets $1,000; second place receives $750, and third place earns $500).
The submission deadline is Monday, March 1. Secondary students will view and vote on the Choose Respect PSAs between Tuesday, April 6, and Tuesday, April 13.
