Spring 2015 PSA Contest
One powerful tool available for creating awareness about your CAP issue or proposed solution is a Public Service Announcement (PSA). A PSA is intended to raise people’s interest in an issue so that they will take action. It is often one of the many civic actions people take when they are trying to make a difference. A CAP PSA should give your audience at least one idea about what they can do to make a difference. Choose your audience wisely. You want to get your message to people who can actually DO something! For example, if you’re creating a PSA that urges people to drive safely, then your audience should not be middle school students who can’t drive. Remember, by creating a PSA you are taking a “civic action” that will help you move towards the bigger goal of making an impact on your problem or issue.
Create your own PSA that:
Students who are currently enrolled or previously enrolled in CAP are eligible to enter.
