2016 PSA and Poster Project
December 15th, 2015

Middlesex County middle and high school students are invited to submit original Public Service Announcements and Posters to the Annual PSA and Poster Project hosted by Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, Inc. and the Middlesex District Attorney's Office.

This year's theme is "Write the story that you want to tell."  This theme aims 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 & Poster Project is for students to communicate a direct, positive voice to other teens.

Possible topics for the videos and posters include:

Celebrating the differences and unique characteristics among us

            Advocating for social justice

           Embracing racial, ethnic, and religious diversity

Knowing who you are and what you stand for is empowering

           Being confident in your own skin

           Believing in your values and morals- no matter what

Following your passions, even in unexpected ways

           Knowing your path through life may not be traditional, but it will be worth it

           Trying new things and having varied experiences to help inform who we are

Making good decisions, even in the face of peer pressure

           Remaining drug and alcohol free

          Choosing to be kind - in person and online

Leading by example and being an agent of change

          Being an active bystander

          Standing up to bullying and cyberbullying

          Practicing good digital citizenship

 

This project is open to all middle school and high school students who live in or attend school in Middlesex County. Students may enter one or both projects. Videos must be between 30 and 60 seconds long.  Posters must be one page and submitted electronically.
