Mrs. Brandy Panagos, a multimedia teacher at Bob Jones High School, tasked her class with producing a video PSA for the Alabama Department of Public Health’s statewide contest. Student Lakyn Shepard won first place and took home a $1,000 prize.
“For all of us to make a video entertaining for teenagers,” Shepard said of the assignment. “Just making sure we have their attention about the Zika virus which is becoming a big deal around the world.”
Panagos gave the students one week to prepare the assignment.
