PSA

This page is an online venue showcasing public service announcements (PSAs) created by high school students about environmental (and other science-based) issues in their community and across the nation. This is a collaboration between BEST Early and Berrien County Math Science Center. Students submit their two-minute videos for a PSA competition at the Michigan High School Math & Science Symposium held on the last Friday of April each year on the campus of Andrews University. Guidelines and Application forms can be accessed at links below.
