This annual contest challenges students to create 30-second public service announcements focused on healthy living, building character or celebrating diversity. According to a press release about the contest, “The goal is to encourage students to focus on positive, great choices that can be made in daily life.”

Awards were announced at an in-person awards reception June 5 at Byron Center High School.

Student submissions are judged anonymously by a panel of college judges. The top 10 high school films in each category will be available to view on the Meijer Great Choices Film Festival website for schools to use as tools for character education, health and diversity programs.
