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
