2018-2019 PSA & Poster Projects
“Be a Voice, Not an Echo”
This year’s theme for the 2018-2019 Public Service Announcement (PSA) and Poster Projects is “Be a Voice, Not an Echo.” Every day, students are faced with the challenges and may choose to be a bystander or may choose to be a leader. It is easier to be voiceless, but it takes courage to stand up and be a voice instead of an echo. This theme is to encourage students to step up and speak up and make their schools and communities better places to live and learn.
Possible topics for this year’s theme include:
- Be a leader, not a follower
- Take bold steps
- Do what you think is right
- Be guided by your own values
- Use your voice to create a positive change
Students from elementary, middle and high schools are invited to submit original Posters and Public Service Announcements (PSAs). All students who attend schools that are members of Middlesex Partnerships for Youth (MPY) are eligible.
The Poster Project has three divisions – elementary, middle and high school. The deadline for submission is January 25, 2019. Posters must be one page and submitted electronically. Each poster must have a title.
