Hillsdale High School



Congratulations to Hillsdale Students: Parker Allen, Ashley Cochran, Kaitlyn Hunyh, Sophia Peterson, William Castlebury, Brianna DiSanto, Theresa Martin and Adrian Moya for creating these winning PSAs for Mrs. Trisko's Fall 2015 health classes. Students were tasked with creating a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for a current health issue that is impacting teens at Hillsdale. Students used collaboration, research, creativity and technology skills to create these works of art. Each PSA was presented and critiqued by judges and these two were selected based on professionalism, content, quality, and presentation skills. Excellent work!
