Highway Safety News, TMA News | May 6th, 2016

TMA Bucks is pleased to announce that Pennsbury High School has been voted the winner of this year’s Teen Driver Video PSA Challenge powered by Comcast!

Pennsbury was voted the winner over five other Bucks County high schools by teen writers from the Reality staff of the Bucks County Courier Times & The Intelligencer for this video:

The two Pennsbury students that created the video are Heather Goodman and Charlie Santella.

“These two were the perfect combination of creativity and technical brilliance,” said PHS video production teacher Dan Mahoney. “From the initial planning stages to the final edit, they serve as a model for the collaborative experience. I was really impressed with their positive, effective message.”

Pennsbury will now receive a $500 cash grant and their video will play on Comcast.

“TMA Bucks continues to be impressed with the skills, creativity and impactful story telling of the importance of being safe and responsible drivers that our Bucks County high school students are creating year after year with these video public service announcements,” said TMA Bucks executive director Bill Brady. “Through our Community Traffic Safety Program, TMA Bucks remains committed to helping teen drivers make smart and safe decisions on the road. We thank Comcast and the Bucks County Courier Times and Intelligencer for continuing to partner with us on this important initiative.”

Other schools that submitted videos were: Bensalem, New Hope-Solebury, Pennridge, Quakertown and William Tennent. Those videos can all be viewed HERE.

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 later this month.

“The TMA Bucks Teen Driver Safety Video PSA Challenge is a fun and innovative program that gets our young drivers in Bucks County to work together while incorporating technology to reach their peers about the importance of becoming safe drivers,” said Brian Jeter, Comcast’s director of government affairs. “Comcast has been extremely proud to support TMA Bucks year after year because the issue is such an important one which ultimately affects everyone.”
