SCCS Elementary Students Winners of PSA Competition|
The New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights' Speak Truth To Power program sponsored the 2014 Elementary “Everyone Has Rights” Public Service Announcement (PSA) contest. Contest participants chose one Article from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and created a 60 - 90 second Public Service Announcement (PSA). Our students learned about this topic during ELA Module 1.
The 5th grade Enrichment classes led by Mr. Benenati and Mrs. Troiani wrote and performed human rights PSAs. They were video-taped and submitted electronically to NYSUT. There were hundreds of submissions from across New York State. Out of hundreds of entries, one group from Emily Howland- Sean Kennedy, Ryan Bailey, Kell Grady, Nick Thurston, and Skylar Starrett, were one of the 17 winners!
