The Richard Harris Law Firm recently invited currently enrolled high school students to compete in its fourth annual video public service announcement contest. Students are encouraged to creatively express true stories and life experiences to address the issue of bullying in society.
“It has become a disturbing trend over the past few years to hear about more children and teenagers bullied at school and online,” says Richard Harris, founder of the Richard Harris Law Firm. “Many children are being sent to school in the morning and tortured by their peers personally and throughout the day on social networks. Too often we wake up to news about another child assaulted at school or taking their own life because of the physical and emotional pain they have to endure. If we can draw enough attention to the issue and impact even one child, we’ve done our job.”
Entries will be judged by a panel of professionals in the media and broadcast industry who will consider students’ creativity and ability to analyze the topic and produce a quality video.
