students invited to produce their own public service announcements to air on tv

This Wednesday, March 14th students from Greenburgh are invited to produce and tape their own one minute public service announcement that will air on public access TV during the spring. The taping will take place from 4:15 PM to 5:15 PM at Greenburgh Town Hall, 177 Hillside Ave, White Plains.

The Public Service Announcements are part of an 8 week program (Student News Network) being organized by Town Clerk Judith Beville and me. The goal of the program: to encourage young people to learn about the media and government and to get involved in community service.

We decided to provide students with the opportunity to produce their own shows and short public service announcements. At our first session some students expressed interest in producing a PSA on recycling. Other students may choose different topics.

We are inviting reporters, editors, former journalists to share their experiences with the students each week.

If you know of any student who would like to produce a one minute public service announcement that will air on cable TV this spring - please invite them to attend our next Student News Network meeting: WEDNESDAY, March 14th from 4:15 to 5:15 PM at Greenburgh Town Hall. Since the PSAs will be aired on TV, parents MUST consent to their airing. Written permission letters signed by a parent will be required.
