Message - Importance of Education
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: Submissions are now closed for The 27th Annual Palm Beaches Student Showcase of Films. The live red carpet award show will be held at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre on May 6, 2022. For more information, please visit pbfilm.com/ssof.
