PSA: Challenge the Perceptions We See

North Dakota PSA screenshotNorth Dakota State College of Science is one of the two schools that won first place in the 2020 Red Ribbon Week Campus PSA Contest! 

With their win, they become the first school to snag the top prize more than once. In 2018, former student Jolisa ‘Jo’ Ross and her friends produced a catchy, rap music-style video PSA that won first place.  

As part of the annual contest, launched in 2016, colleges and universities that entered produced a 30- to 60-second antidrug video PSA focusing on the dangers of alcohol and drug misuse among college students.

For the first time in the contest’s history, two schools snagged the top prize. The University of Miami also won first place in this year's competition. Watch their PSA here: https://youtu.be/yit7jfGK4s8
