Creative thinking to share how to solve a problem or address a critical issue is the backbone of any Public Service Announcement. In this presentation, the Zenith Students (grades 8-12) worked on their own PSA's and then created tutorials so the elementary students could make their own. While the original projects started off with everyday problems like bullying and dress code, the content and themes evolved to more serious topics such as COVID 19 issues, Hurricane Preparedness, cell phone use at school, cleaning up the environment and shopping locally. This poster session will include steps to creating a PSA, tools used, how to find an audience, and more.
