Anti-Bullying ad contest entries due April 30
Ponca City Now - April 26, 2016 9:55 am
Saturday is the deadline for Ponca City students to submit their entries in Team Radio’s anti-bullying public service announcement contests.
KPNC and KLOR, along with Stolhand Heat & Air, Wells Plumbing and Parents Against Bullying of Kay County, are seeking entries from youth on "Why Making My School a Kinder and Safer Place Is Important and How I can Make a Difference."
The contest is to bring awareness to the need for making schools kinder and safer. A safe learning environment promotes resiliency and reduces stress, research shows.
Talking and modeling the positive can help to avoid hurtful behaviors and keep kids from feeling helpless, sponsors said.
There are four grade categories: grades 5-6, grades 7-8, grades 9-10 and grades 11-12.
Individuals or teams are asked to write a 30-second or 60-second public service announcement on making their schools kinder and safer.
The announcements will be judged by employees of Team Radio and community leaders, both adults and youth. There will be one winner from each grade paired category.
The winners will come to the Team Radio stations to record their winning announcements, which will be on air on KPNC and KLOR for the remainder of 2016.
Submit entries in person at 102 East Grand Avenue (above the Poncan Theatre); by mail: P.O. Box 2509, Ponca City OK 74602, or by email: [email protected].
All entries are due by this Saturday and will be judged between May 2 and May 13. Winners will be announced May 16 and winners will record their winning messages between May 17 and May 27. The announcements will air June 1 to Dec. 31 on KPNC and KLOR.
A $100 cash prize will be awarded to the winning PSA in each grade category. A $100 gift of school supplies or a gift card will be awarded to the English teacher of each winning PSA.
