BIFF Radio Students Sweep County-wide PSA Contest
Bloomfield Hills Schools radio broadcasting students won 1st Place, 2nd Place and 3rd Place in a contest for Oakland County high school students to write a Public Service Announcement for the theme “Know Before You Go, Be An Informed Voter.”
Sponsored by the League of Women Voters Oakland Area, the contest was open to all public, private, parochial and home-schooled students who attend or reside in Oakland County.
In the Radio Category, Andover High School junior Bryan Brown won 1st Place and received a $350 cash prize. Andover senior Kenny Selander won 2nd Place and received a $250 cash prize. Andover senior Paul Stewart and Andover sophomore Mark Stewart won 3rd Place and received a $150 cash prize.

LWVOA PSA Committee Chairperson Renate Soulen presented the awards at the Bloomfield Township Public Library May 31, 2012.
The goal of the PSA contest was to stimulate voters to become informed before casting a vote. Entries were judged on creativity, originality, clarity, motivational message and the use of theme. The winning entries will air on the commercial radio station WWJ News Radio 950 in Detroit.
