Five Finalists Named in PSA Project
June 1st, 2015

MPY and MDAO Announce PSA Project Finalists

Five videos created by students from schools across Middlesex County have been chosen as finalists in the 7th annual PSA Project, sponsored by Middlesex Partnerships for Youth and the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.

The theme for the PSA Project was “I’m Worth More.” The goal of this theme is to explore healthy relationships through mutual respect, acceptance, and appreciation of strengths, weaknesses and the differences among us. It is also meant to focus on the importance of self-respect regarding dating relationships that will allow teens and young adults to recognize the signs of an unhealthy relationship.

The goal of the 2014-2015 PSA Project is for students to communicate a direct, positive voice to other teens. The “I’m Worth More” effort will challenge students to look internally to discover their personal strengths and develop the confidence to be the best person they can be.

Forty-nine entries were received. A panel of judges including educators, police officers, and MPY and District Attorney’s Office staff viewed and selected five finalists.

The five finalists are:

International School of Boston, Cambridge: “We’re Worth More Than Words”

Melrose High School: “I’m Worth More”

Nashoba Valley Technical High School, Westford: “I’m Worth More”

Somerville High School: “What happened to being a Princess?”

Somerville High School: “Coming Out”
