Palisades High School Voted Winner Of Teen Driver Safety Video PSA Challenge!

Highway Safety News, TMA News | June 25th, 2020

We are pleased to announce that Palisades High School of Kintnersville has been voted the winner of this year’s Teen Driver Safety Video PSA Challenge powered by Comcast!

Palisades was voted the winner over three 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 Palisades student David Eschallier, who just wrapped up his Junior year.

“I’m so surprised and honored to win this award,” said Eschallier. “I hope it helps convey an important message.”

Palisades will now receive a $500 cash grant from TMA Bucks and the PSA will air on Comcast networking.

“I am so proud of David and the work he put into producing this video,” said Palisades business education teacher Nancy Rugel. “He proposed the idea of creating an animation and worked diligently throughout the editing process. David’s outside-the-box thinking helped him create this very effective message about the importance of not texting while driving.”

Other schools that submitted videos in such a challenging year were: Pennsbury High School, Holy Ghost Prep and William Tennent High School.

“I want to first and foremost thank all four high schools that stepped up and still submitted videos in a school year that presented challenges like never before,” said TMA Bucks deputy director David Walter. “They should all be extremely proud of what they created and the hard work they put in. TMA Bucks thanks Comcast and the Bucks County Courier Times and The Intelligencer for continuing to partner with us on this important program.”

As part of the annual Bucks County High School Seatbelt Safety Challenge all participating high schools had the opportunity to produce and submit a 30-second video PSA on teen driver safety.

Due to schools closing physical locations in March, this was the first time since the Seatbelt Challenge began in 2008 that no winners could be awarded as final seatbelt counts could not take place.

“Comcast continues to view the TMA Bucks Teen Driver Safety Video PSA Challenge as an innovative and productive outlet for students to join together to deliver important messages about teen driving safety and this year was especially impressive considering the circumstances for teachers and students,” says Brian Jeter, Comcast’s director of government affairs. “Comcast continues to be a proud supporter of TMA Bucks and this outstanding program.”
