Lenawee Broadcasting’s WLEN-FM (Adrian) has announced winners in its 6th Annual PSA Contest.  With the theme of “How do you envision a world of kindness that would: reduce suicide, reduce drug use or reduce bullying,” students in classes, groups and organizations all across Lenawee County were challenged to create public service announcements in audio or video around this theme. The entries were judged on line by the entire community. The contest was open to Lenawee students aged 12 to 20.

In 1st Place and receiving a $1,000 scholarship from Lenawee Community Mental Health Authority was Mariah McKinney (Adrian Public Schools); in second place was Paige Lemay Smith (Onsted Public Schools), the winner of a $300 gift card from TLC Community Credit Union; and in third place was Brandt Brown (Clinton Community Schools), the winner of a $200 gift card from TLC Community Credit Union.

The winner’s PSAs will be airing on the station as well as the WLEN website for the remainder of 2019. This project was undertaken to bring awareness to issues affecting our youth in school and in our community, and was generously supported in by the Lenawee Community Mental Health Authority and TLC Community Credit Union.
