Marywood University Students Win First Place for Student Advocacy Day PSA Project

Marywood University’s Chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) was recently notified by the Pennsylvania Speech-Language-Hearing Association that they are the first-place winners of the Student Advocacy Day Public Service Announcement (PSA) Project.

Following an educational session on legislative issues in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, NSSLHA Chapters were asked to develop a public service announcement that would address key issues that professionals and individuals with communication disorders face. The project helps others to understand the purpose for advocating for these issues, and the importance of making their voices heard.

Marywood University’s NSSLHA Chapter chose to create a PSA regarding Diversity in the Workplace. A monetary prize was awarded, and Marywood University NSSLHA Chapter students chose to donate the monetary prize to the NativityMiguel School. Located on Marywood University’s campus, the NativityMiguel School seeks to empower students of all races and beliefs to reach their full potential.
