Winners announced in New Jersey’s student contest for prom PSA

    The winners have been announced in New Jersey’s Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control “Proms and Alcohol Don’t Mix” public service announcement contest.

    Carlie Cattelona, Melissa Chayt and Emily Considine of Pascack Valley High School will have their 30-second PSA aired TV stations throughout the state as prom season gears up.
    A panel of ABC staff, media specialists and teen substance abuse advocates judged the 50-plus entries, and a Rutgers production team helped shoot the PSA in February.
