Jackson Hole Campaign for Safer Wireless Use Announces 5 Winners in its 3rd Annual Student Ad Contest for their Video submissions
Jackson Hole Schools and Fairs were buzzing this year as the contest reached further into the community than ever. Elementary, Middle and Secondary Schools were visited once or twice throughout the year to spread EHT’s message of how to be safer in our wireless world. With the use of a microwave radiation detector, students, teachers and parents alike were surprised to see the amount and frequency of microwave radiation in their classrooms, lunchrooms, offices and homes. Funky headsets were popular among the displays, particularly with the middle schoolers and it was clear that students were very excited to share their experiences and ask questions about this very popular activity in their lives.
The winners submitted videos that utilized peer incentive to learn the facts and practice safe phone!
Runners up were Carson Meyer, Sam Swartz, Ciel Colon and Victor Perez for their video entitled “Cell Phone Radiation” seen here:
