Two Sylvan Hills EAST students have created a PSA on new texting while driving law.

Two Sylvan Hills EAST students noticed a need for teens and adults alike to be aware of the new law in effect in Arkansas making it illegal to text while driving. Senior EAST II student Michael and freshman EAST I student Ethan together created a thirty-second PSA (Public Service Announcment) that they hope will be aired by local television stations.

After creating a storyboard, the students shot the video using a Flip camera and imported it into iMovie to edit the footage and add graphics.

Michael and Ethan then contacted KARK, KATV and KTHV. All three have expressed interest in the video, as well as the story behind it. The students met with Craig O'Neill of KTHV, who is scheduling an interview in the EAST classroom. The segment will tentatively be aired tomorrow night, Tuesday, January 26 at 10:00 p.m.
