Broadcast students at Ladue Horton Watkins High School collaborated with media professionals at KSDK to produce a 30-second PSA about mental health during the pandemic.
Eight LHWHS students enrolled in broadcast technology classes participated in the project, which gives them hands-on experience creating a video alongside seasoned media professionals from 5 On Your Side.
The students are given a topic and told to generate ideas and ultimately a final concept for a PSA.
They then work with a 5 On Your Side editor to put together the final 30-second piece.
The topic this year was “Mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
