BROWNWOOD – The Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Brownwood District recently named Brownwood High School the first place winner in TxDOT’s annual Project Celebration Public Service Announcement (PSA) Competition. BHS senior Tim Crawford produced a video PSA to encourage fellow students to drive safely, never drink and drive, and eliminate distractions, such as texting, while driving.
During the Brownwood Independent School District Board meeting Monday, May 13, 2019, Brownwood High School was presented with a $1500 check that will be used to pay costs associated with the BHS Project Graduation, an all-night drug and alcohol-free “party” following prom and graduation ceremonies held at high schools across Texas. Graduation and prom season is a time when many students face decisions to participate in activities that may involve drugs or alcohol. TxDOT’s PSA competition is a way for students to raise awareness among their peers regarding the tragic consequences that may result from the consumption of alcohol, use of drugs, distracted driving, or other dangerous driving behaviors.
The PSA entries were judged by members of TxDOT Brownwood’s DRIVERS Coalition.
TxDOT Brownwood District includes Brown, Coleman, Comanche, Eastland, Lampasas, McCulloch, Mills, San Saba, and Stephens counties.
