Massachusetts Partnerships for Youth Announces 2018-2019 PSA and Poster Projects

Tuesday December 11, 2018

The Massachusetts Partnerships for Youth (MPY) launched the 2018-2019 Public Service Announcement (PSA) and Poster Projects in October 2018. The theme this year is Be a Voice, Not an Echo. The famous quote by Albert Einstein encourages students to speak for themselves instead of just repeating what others are saying.

This year’s Poster Project has three separate divisions for elementary, middle and high school students to enter.  Winning posters are distributed to middle and high schools and are also featured on the MPY web site.

The Public Service Announcement Project (PSA) is open to high school students only. The winning PSA will be posted to YouTube and linked to the MPY web site.

All students who attend schools that are members of The Massachusetts Partnerships for Youth are eligible to submit entries. Winners will be honored in their own school or community, per choice of their school administration.

The entry deadline for the Poster Project is fast approaching on January 25, 2019. The deadline for PSA entries is May 4, 2019.

The 2018 Poster Project winners were:

Bre Guthiel from Nashoba Valley Technical High School for her entry “HUMAN”

Ava Desario from Trahan Elementary School in Tewksbury for her entry
“Make it Happen”
