New This Year!! A Spanish-language PSA

This year we are proud to offer the opportunity for students to create a Spanish-language PSA for our contest. This is the first year in our contest’s history to offer a winner for both English and Spanish-language videos and we are excited to see your entries. Spanish is the second-most commonly spoken language in the 15-county region, and we are hopeful that our PSA messaging through this contest will reach more residents than ever before!
