Local Teens Awarded for their Public Service Announcements!

Poughkeepsie, NY – On Friday, April 11th, before an audience of staff members, community partners, and their families and peers, the Youth Health Promoters of Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley were awarded Best Writing and Best Cinematography for their public service announcement, “Life Comes with Choices.” 

The competition itself consisted of four PSAs, created and selected by the teens of four local Planned Parenthood affiliates.  Voting took place online prior to Friday’s event, with over 360 people participating.

This is the second year that Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley has worked with MyMediaLife to produce these public service announcements.  Each year, the Youth Health Promoters spend time conceptualizing the PSAs, writing scripts, auditioning for and casting roles, styling costumes, hair, and makeup, and ultimately producing incredibly moving stories.  Speaking about this year’s PSAs, PPMHV CEO Ruth-Ellen Blodgett shared that she “could not be more proud of the work, the message and the mission of that these [PSAs] reflect.”

To view the PSAs produced this year and last year by Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley’s  Youth Health Promoters, log on to our YouTube channel at www.YouTube.com/PlannedParenthoodMHV.
