Kids’ PSA contest extended to Aug. 3

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 by Tai Moses

With the kids all at home now looking for ways to channel their bottled-up creativity, the Public Works Department has extended the deadline for its “Lights, Camera, Safety” public service announcement contest to Aug. 3. The contest, a brainchild of the Safe Routes to School program, invites all 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. (Hint: Making a short video together is a great family project.) The winner will get an Alamo Drafthouse gift card and the honor of having his or her PSA shown in middle schools across the city. Winners will be announced in September. Check out the contest website for more details about the rules and how to enter and submit a video.
