Posted by Community Relations Department on 12/26/2012

Irma Ramirez and Janet Garcia Trujillo were finalists for a video public service (PSA) contest, winning $500 each and they will have their videos shown on Cox Cable.   As part of the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office Fall 2012 My Message PSA Contest, students were asked to “create a compelling, 25-second video to encourage teens to stay off drugs and alcohol and not to abuse prescription drugs”.

Eighteen Metro Tech Film students produced videos for the competition. Nine Metro students made the semifinals, announced December 6 and the finalists were honored at an awards ceremony, December 14.    The Metro Media Arts teacher is Bob Marquis.
