Hampden District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni has launched a Public Service Announcement (PSA) and Billboard Challenge as part of his #StoptheSwerve campaign to local high school students.
Hampden District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni stated, “I am grateful to Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance and their administration of the Drunk Driving Trust Fund for the grant funding that will allow our office to expand our outreach to high school students. The PSA and billboard contest will showcase students sharing an important message with their fellow classmates and the community at large as it relates to drunk and impaired driving.”
The PSA and billboard contest is open to all Hampden County high school students, organizations, clubs and athletic teams to highlight the dangers of drunk and/or impaired driving. The contest consist of high school, through a faculty representative, students submitting a 30 – 60 second video entry or billboard design which must be original, note the risks associated with drunk or drugged driving, and communicate messages about public safety.
Winning entries for both the PSA and billboard challenge will receive $10,000 grants to enhance their schools’ technological resources. They will also be highlighted at the March 30, 2017 event at the Basketball Hall of Fame. Additionally the winning PSA will be broadcast on-line and the winning billboard will be displayed on a billboard in Hampden County.
Below are the guidelines for the contest. The deadline for submission is March 10, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. For any questions regarding the PSA or Billboard challenge please contact the Hampden District Attorney’s Office at 413-747-1000.
