Kenberli Gomez Wins 2013 Students With a Cause PSA Contest
Published on Tue, Jun 18, 2013 (6:04 p.m.)LAS VEGAS — The Richard Harris Law Firm is proud to announce the winner of the 2013 Students with a Cause PSA Contest: Kenberli Gomez of West Preparatory Academy. Ms. Gomez submitted her self-made, 30-second video PSA for consideration, and was selected as the winner by a panel, which included members of the Richard Harris Law Firm and professionals in the media and broadcast industry. The contest, now in its fourth year, focused on the topic of bullying. Currently enrolled high school students (grades 9 to 12) in Clark County, Nevada, were encouraged to submit videos for consideration. The contest received nearly 40 entries from talented students throughout the Valley, and a review panel narrowed down their decision based on creativity, content and clarity of the message. Ms. Gomez’s video was chosen because of her interpretation of the issue of bullying and call for action to be aware of the problem and change the behaviors affecting many children and young adults in our area, and across the country.
“There was a great deal of competition this year, and there were some really quality videos that were entered in the contest,” says Richard Harris, Founder of the Richard Harris Law Firm. “The final selection of Kenberli came down to the sheer emotion she conveyed in the video. When reviewing the submissions, the panel continued to mention not only were the students talented, but they also had a firm grasp on the damage bullying causes. This video will be shown on television throughout Clark County. We truly hope the message reaches its target and instances of bullying decrease.”
As the winner, Kenberli received a $1,500 scholarship. A $500 donation was also made to West Preparatory Academy. Ms. Gomez was officially named the PSA contest winner and presented her first place award on Wednesday, June 12, 2013.
Next year’s contest, featuring a different topic, will be announced in early 2014. For more information about the 2013 Students with a Cause PSA Contest or to watch all of the submissions, please visit RichardHarrisLaw.com.
