On Tuesday, June 16th, ROP Video Production students from Aptos High School were awarded first place in the 2015 Soquel Creek Water District Public Service Announcement Contest. The Contest called for participants to create a 30 second public service announcement featuring ways to save water. At Aptos High School, ROP Instructor Jenny Angelacos created an instructional unit around the competition. The unit began with students researching topics surrounding water conservation. After selecting one water saving tip for the focus of their PSA, students worked in groups to create a storyboard for their video. Finally, students filmed and edited the video into the TV broadcast requirements of a 30 second PSA. Aside from Aptos High School, students from Watsonville High and Kirby School submitted PSA’s to the contest. The winning entries from the PSA competition will be aired on local television channels and can be found at this website.
