Contestants were invited to a screening party and awards ceremony at the North by Northwest Digital Studio on February 11th where community members and participants were able to view all 12 of 2015 PSA Contest entries. The three winners were then announced and awarded prizes.


The contest invited students to create 29-second videos addressing their peers about issues including teen dating abuse and healthy relationships. The winning videos will be integrated into WCA outreach and will be shared in future presentations to student groups.

“This contest allows students to show their talents and help spread an important message to their peers,” said WCA Communications and Outreach Manager, Chris Campbell-Davis. “We hope that in the process of making and sharing these videos, a difference may be made for at least one young person who may be experiencing an unhealthy or abusive relationship. We are so impressed by the creativity and compassion of each of the participants.”
