Pennridge was voted the winner over 11 other Bucks County high schools by the Reality student writers of the Bucks County Courier Times & The Intelligencer for this video:
The winning video was put together by Bobby Brashear, Christian Hangey, Gunnar Orth and Ethan Saville from Tammy Rissmiller’s Students Against Destructive Decisions group.
Pennridge’s SADD group will now receive a $500 cash grant from TMA Bucks.
“I am so proud of my SADD students,” said Rissmiller. “They took a humorous approach to address a serious issue – a way that would appeal to many teens.”
Other schools that submitted videos were: Bensalem High School, Central Bucks High School South, Council Rock High School North, Holy Ghost Prep, Neshaminy High School, New Hope-Solebury High School, Palisades High School, Pennridge High School, Pennsbury High School, Quakertown Community High School, Truman High School and William Tennent High School.
“It was such a pleasure to see 12 schools submit videos this year, the most ever in the history of the contest,” said TMA Bucks executive director Steve Noll. “Each and every year we continue to be impressed by the creativity of the students. TMA Bucks thanks Comcast and the Bucks County Courier Times and Intelligencer for continuing to partner with us on this important initiative.”
As part of the annual Bucks County High School Seatbelt Safety Challenge all participating high schools have the opportunity to produce and submit a 30-second video PSA on teen driver safety.
Winners for the Seatbelt Challenge will be announced at a later date.
“Each and every year Comcast sees the TMA Bucks Teen Driver Safety Video PSA Challenge as an innovative and productive opportunity for students to come together in groups, foster creativity and then use technology to deliver important messages about teen driving that strive to save lives,” says Brian Jeter, Comcast’s director of government affairs. “Comcast continues to be proud supporters of TMA Bucks and this outstanding program.”
