PSA Contest Winners

2018 CTE Video Communications Students Suicide Prevention & Awareness PSA Contest Winners

DoDEA has a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention in our schools that includes strong evidence-based training of our psychologists, counselors, and nurses. It promotes teacher and student awareness, prepares classroom presentations in middle and high schools, and engages a screening process for at-risk students designed to get them the help they need.

We want to help students struggling with suicidal thoughts before those thoughts become action. Our efforts are most successful when barriers to communication between students and caring adults are overcome. The most credible efforts to overcome those barriers come from the students themselves. These factors gave birth to the idea of a contest for a suicide prevention campaign designed, produced, and edited by students.

Students in DoDEA's Career and Technical Education (CTE) Video Communication classes were challenged with creating a 30- to 60-second Public Service Announcement (PSA) to support suicide prevention and awareness. The students worked closely with CTE instructors, school psychologists and counselors to design, shoot and edit the PSAs. Videos were selected based on adherence to safe messaging guidelines, purpose, transitions, clarity, audio and aesthetics.
