In its second year, PSAid challenges students to create a 30-second public service announcement (PSA) that will raise public awareness of and rally support for appropriate donations for international disaster victims. The goal of PSAid is to convey the message that "cash is best" when donating to disaster victims and to educate the American public about the importance of appropriate international disaster relief.
The first-place winner will receive $12,000 in cash and the chance for their PSA to be broadcast on national television. The second- and third-place winners will receive $5,000 and $3,000 in cash, respectively.
Details about the contest, official rules and guidelines, and registration materials can be found at www.psaid.org. If you would like this information sooner for incorporation of the contest into semester curriculums and/or to share with your students, contact the contest coordinator at email@example.com.
