APS Snapshots

Snapshots Showcases Williamsburg Student-Created PSAs

In this episode, Snapshots talks with Williamsburg Middle School Journalism teacher Jeff Schonfeld about a series of PSAs they produced. Journalism students have been hearing in the news all year about controversial issues and societal problems including: violence, intolerance, and injustice just to name a few. They've learned that these issues have real-world implications for themselves and the people they care about. And they've decided to do something about it.

In a series of student produced Public Service Announcements (PSAs), these seventh and eighth graders seek to both inform the public about the problems in our world—and persuade them to advocate for change. Ranging from drug abuse to gun violence to civil rights for LGBTQ, these PSAs demonstrate that it's never too soon for kids to stand up for what's right.
