JP ll Students Deliver Safety Message
Two students from John Paul ll Catholic Secondary School are the winners of a Public Service Announcement contest aimed at getting teens to and from their proms safely.
The idea was for youth in the three county area (including Middlesex-London, Oxford and Elgin) to send in their 30-60 second PSA (public service announcement) promoting one or more of SafeGrad’s “safer party” messages:
- Making sure you have a safe and sober way home from a party
- Understanding the laws and liability for hosting a party
- Creating healthy relationships
- Understanding the negative consequences of drug & alcohol misuse
- Choosing to be sober and in control
The winning PSA video was submitted by Alex Piorkowski and Nic Ficca from John Paul ll . They have won a $500 Apple Prize Pack.
They were introduced at a news conference and congratulated at the Monday meeting of the Board of Trustees.
Safe Grad is a community partnership whose mission is to equip high school students with information, skills, peer support and community support to plan safer celebrations throughout the year.
