William Tennent High School Voted Winner Of Teen Driver Video PSA Challenge

Highway Safety News, TMA News | May 5th, 2017

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

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

“I couldn’t be more proud of my students for producing such a powerful PSA,” said Mrs. Dina McCaffery, William Tennent High School digital production teacher. “This is the third time we have entered the PSA contest and we are honored that this is our second time winning! The message behind our school’s PSA is personal for me since I lost a friend when I was in high school as a result of someone driving under the influence. The students really wanted to drive home the message that someone is waiting, drive responsibly.”

The video was put together by the following seniors in McCaffery’s media production class: Elisse Hanssen, Evan Hutton, Ashton McGovern and Lindsey Snock.

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

“TMA Bucks was thrilled to see 10 schools submit videos this year, the most ever since we began this component of the Seatbelt Challenge five years ago, said TMA Bucks executive director Bill Brady. “The creativity these students are using to employ positive messaging continues to exceed our expectations. The TMA thanks 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 High School, Central Bucks High School East, Central Bucks High School West, Council Rock High School North, Middle Bucks Institute of Technology, New Hope-Solebury High School, Pennridge High School, Pennsbury High School and Quakertown Community High School. Those videos can 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 continues to be a leading educational opportunity that allows Bucks County students to collaborate their ideas and also have fun while delivering a positive message,” said Brian Jeter, Comcast’s director of government affairs. “This is a great way of incorporate technology to reach a large audience. Comcast continues to be proud supporters of TMA Bucks and this important initiative throughout Bucks County.”
