William Penn Senior High School to produce ‘Public Service Announcement (PSA): Driving Distracted’

Posted on March 9th, 2020

At the School District of the City of York, we believe in providing our students with experiential learning opportunities. William Penn Senior High School will be entering in the NJM Insurance Group and the Pennsylvania DUI Association “Just Drive PSA” Contest. The goal of the contest is to help teens keep safety top of mind, and educate them early on about good behaviors behind the wheel before they have the chance to develop habits that can lead to accidents, injury and more serious consequences. This PSA contest empowers teens to work together to develop compelling safety campaigns and encourage each other and their peers to ‘just drive.’

William Penn Senior High School in conjunction with our Public Safety Academy and other local first responders will be producing and filming a public service announcement about distracted driving, with the goal of emphasizing the importance of avoiding distracted driving and reduce teen driving injuries and fatalities.

“Our goal is to make this production as “dramatic” and “lifelike” as possible…. We truly want to make a difference with youth in our community and assisting them with making “live with” choices when driving…. before it’s too late,” says Officer Einsig, School Police Officer and Public Safety Academy coordinator.

Please see below an overview of the filming for your awareness:

Date: Tuesday, March 10, 2020

Time: 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM
