May 10, 2016 -Springfield, Mass- Hampden District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni will be presenting Ludlow High School with a $10,000 check to use in upgrading the school’s technological capabilities. The award stems from a group of Ludlow High School seniors who submitted a winning public service announcement at the Hampden District Attorney’s #StoptheSwerve event in March at the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Hampden District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni stated, “I am tremendously proud to be able to present this award to Ludlow High School. The students involved did a superb job; the residents of Ludlow and Hampden County has a whole should be proud of their efforts. ”
Earlier this year, area high school students had the opportunity to create public service announcements (PSA) highlighting the dangers of impaired driving. The thirty to sixty second entries were to be original, note the risks associated with drunk or drugged driving, and communicate messages about public safety.
First prize was a $10,000 award to the school that submitted a winning entry and can be used to improve technological equipment at their school.
The winning PSA titled The Mourning After has been playing on Channel 22, WWLP as part of their public service announcements.
The contest was made possible by a grant from the Drunk Driving Trust Fund which is administered by the Massachusetts Office of Victim Assistance.
