Psa on dating violence
Students in middle school, high school, and college in the Boise area are invited to submit 29-second Public Service Announcements that speak to your friends and peers about Adolescent Relationship Abuse and/or Healthy Adolescent Relationships.You are welcome to focus on any subject within these topics, such as recognizing abuse, supporting a friend, or discussing healthy boundaries.
Below is a four-step platform to educate teens about dating violence along with some suggested activities to help ensure you keep your teenage audience engaged throughout each step.
The contest is open for submissions until February 9, 2018 and we’ll announce winners in February for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.
Winning videos will be shared on WCA social media, in our newsletters, and as examples for future contests. Interested in bringing a presentation about these issues to your class or club?
Despite the fact roughly one in three teens experiences abuse from a dating partner, most teens are unaware of the prevalence of TDV.
Other teens think they are immune to TDV, and view it as a problem that would never impact their lives.
