The public service announcement team of Agua Fria High School’s Health Occupations Students of America just placed big time.
For their public service announcement on child hunger, three Agua Fria students won second place in the state competition last spring and fifth nationally in late-June.
Crystal Mowbray, sports medicine instructor and HOSA adviser, and three students on the PSA team traveled to Orlando, Fla., in late-June to show their PSA video and give a presentation in front of hundreds of competitors from other schools.
“It’s a very big deal … it’s very competitive and it’s kind of a big deal for them to get on stage,” she said.
Mowbray said in the eight-plus years she’s worked at Agua Fria, this was the first PSA they’ve made.
Jasmine Ky and Nancy Acuna, both 17-year-old seniors, wrote the script for the PSA and coordinated with the campus cafeteria and the Southwest Valley YMCA to make the short film on hunger.
