A young artist sitting at a desk says “it is what makes me different.” A man at a construction site says “it is what makes me unique.” A teenager in a classroom says “it is why our voices are allowed to be heard.”
The images and messages are simple, yet striking, and are part of a public service announcement created by Cal State Northridge multimedia student Jason Moore that took third place in the television category in a national competition by the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Education Foundation on “what freedom of speech means to me.”
By taking third, Moore’s 30-second public service announcement (PSA) is available for use by television stations across the country. There were more than 100 entries in the competition.
Moore, a senior in CSUN’s Department of Cinema and Television Arts, said he was surprised at the win and honored that his work may be viewed by people from California to Maine. (click here to read the entire story)
