STUDENT CONTEST WINNERS HONORED FOR RAISING AWARENESS ABOUT DATING ABUSE AND HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

Boise, ID – The Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) is pleased to announce the winners of its 2018 Public Service Announcement (PSA) contest. Judges and staff were impressed with the high quality submissions, which provide information and resources about dating abuse and healthy relationships to teens and young adults.

The contest winners are:

The contest invited students to create 29-second videos addressing their peers about issues including teen dating abuse and healthy relationships. The winning videos will be integrated into WCA outreach and will be shared in future presentations to student groups.

“This contest allows students to show their talents and help spread an important message to their peers,” said WCA Communications Manager, Christine Davis. “We hope that in the process of making and sharing these videos, a difference may be made for at least one young person who may be experiencing an unhealthy or abusive relationship. We are so impressed by the creativity and compassion of each of the participants.”

The WCA operates two 24-hour information lines, secure shelter and transitional housing and provides professional counseling, legal advocacy, licensed child care, financial literacy and life skills training, and case management services.
