The Northfield Healthy Community Initiative (HCI), in partnership with the Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Alcohol & Drug Use, ARTech Charter School and Northfield Public Schools, is proud to announce the results of our Video PSA Contest on the subject of cyberbullying and responsible technology use.  We were extremely pleased with all the finalist videos and impressed with the work of the young people in our community.

After tallying all of the votes in the public voting, the top vote getter was “That Losing Goal,” produced by Hanna Bubser and Samantha Roback.

The panel of judges, made up of school district administrators, students, HCI board members and members of the Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Alcohol & Drug Use, also selected a “Judges’ Prize.”  That award goes to Zachary Anderson for his video, “Words Have Power.”

The following individuals also received honorable mentions for their technical merit and relevant content: Connor Balfany, CJ Betcher, Kyle Betcher, David Greer, Seth Hansen, and Chen Ye.

All of the video finalists will continue to be available on the HCI website.  They will also be aired on Northfield Television and shared with local parents and students through the Northfield schools.  Our hope is that these locally created video messages will continue to inform and educate students, parents and all community members about the importance of responsible technology use.
