WETA Sponsoring Video Contest for Young People


Washington Blade (03/03/89) Vol. 20, No. 9, P. 14

Youth in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area are competing in an AIDS education video contest. Local public television station WETA is sponsoring the contest, which Station Manager Joyce Campbell says she hopes will "help local teens understand how to handle and prevent this disease." WETA will broadcast the top three one-to-five minute entries in the contest, which ends March 15. The winner will receive a $250 savings bond and take part in a national contest sponsored by Public Television Outreach and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The second and third place finishers will win a $175 bond and a $75 bond, respectively.
