McLaughlin Students Create PSA's for U.S. Forest Service
During Summer School, select Mclaughlin School students had the opportunity to partner with the United States Forest Service to create local Public Service Announcements for the Chugach National Forest. Virtual Guest Speakers presented information related to jobs within the U.S. Forest Service, safety protocols for outdoor recreation, and environmental concerns that impact our forests.
Students then collaborated with Wild Voices, a local storytelling non-profit, to learn the basics of writing their own PSA scripts as well as how to record and edit the PSA's using professional equipment and software. The PSA's students created conveyed information about fire prevention and recreating responsibly on public lands.
A special thank you to the Alaska Region of U.S. Forest Service, Wild Voices, Ms. Alexander, and MYC State Staff for enabling this opportunity!
