Kids’ PSA contest deadline approaches

Monday, July 27, 2020 by Tai Moses

Austin Public Works has invited all sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders to enter its first annual Lights, Camera, Safety PSA (public service announcement) contest, and submissions are due Aug. 3. The contest, a brainchild of the Safe Routes to School educational program, asks middle schoolers to create a short cell phone video – anywhere from 30 seconds to two minutes long – depicting safe ways to walk, cycle or roll to school. Kids can enter the contest on their own or as part of a team and must follow the CDC’s social distancing guidelines while making the video. The winning videos will be broadcast in middle schools across the city and winners will receive gift cards to Alamo Drafthouse. To submit a video or learn more about the contest rules, visit the Lights, Camera, Safety contest website.
