Hubbard broadcast students claim $1,000 prize for PSA


The Trumbull Ashtabula Group Law Enforcement Task Force awarded Megan Schellhorn’s Hubbard High School production and broadcasting class $1,000 as a first-place prize for its anti-drug public service announcement contest.

Howland won second place and LaBrae won third place and received $250 and $100, respectively. The money goes toward the schools’ production programs.

Students collaborated with the Hubbard police and C&C Towing for the project.

The video was created solely by the students, who developed the concept, created a storyboard, cast the parts, obtained release forms for the actors, arranged for the music to be created and edited the final product.

Senior Lauryn Laney said the project taught them a lot not just about video production, but the heroin epidemic.
