CALLING ALL DEKALB HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS & SENIORS
DeKalb County Solicitor-General Donna Coleman-Stribling Sponsors Stop Teen Dating Violence Public Service Announcement Contest
Promoting Healthy Teen Relationships
DECATUR, GA – The Office of the DeKalb County Solicitor General is partnering with Cinderella’s Gowns, The Men’s Wearhouse and Day League (formerly DeKalb Rape Crisis Center) to sponsor the 2017 Stop Teen Dating Violence PSA Contest.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month and we are inviting DeKalb County high school seniors and juniors to put together the best 1-minute video promoting healthy teen dating practices that prevent dating violence and highlight positive characteristics such as honesty, compromise, good communication, individuality, understanding and problem solving.
The student producing the winning PSA will receive a Prom Prize Package including dinner for two, limo service for the evening, and a prom dress and tuxedo for the winner and her or his date.
“It’s one thing for adults to stand in front of students and tell them how to act when they’re dating,” DeKalb Solicitor-General Donna Coleman-Stribling said. “It’s quite another when the good example is being set by their peers. We’ve got lots of bright, talented kids in DeKalb who are all about doing the right thing. This is an opportunity for them to make a difference using their smarts and creativity.”
The winning video will be broadcast by CW Atlanta and will be distributed to schools throughout DeKalb County to play at each prom.
The Office of the DeKalb Solicitor-General encourages any teen who is aware of or experiencing teen dating violence to reach out to www.loveisrespect.org, call the Hotline at 1.866.331.9474 or text “LOVEIS” to 22522 for assistance.
