Message - Importance of Education
Production Design
Special Effects

DESCRIPTION: Education provides us with knowledge about the world. It paves the way for a good career. It helps build character. It leads to enlightenment. It lays the foundation of a stronger nation. Education makes a person complete. When students lose sight of their education, they will encounter future difficulties. The best way to understand the importance of education is to enlighten people on why education is important to an individual’s career choice. An effective PSA is the perfect way to show how an educated individual, in any industry or market, has a far better chance of obtaining employment and a solid career path. However, the importance of education is not only found in the ability to secure employment, but is also connected to fiscal responsibility, the development of a specified skill-set as well as an overall responsible and logic-based mind. 

APPLICATION PROCESS: To begin the process of submitting your Education PSA project, complete the Student Showcase of Films Online Application (CLOSED). Our system will guide you through the necessary steps to completion.
