Drive Safe Chicago: Taylor's Big Day


PNN's Taylor Washington gets in position for the perfect shot as Mr. Past shoots from behind the scenes


A production meeting, held in the MHS Freshman Center conference room got the day underway.

This past January, PNN senior Taylor Washington was announced as a finalist for the National Road Safety Foundation's "Drive Safe Chicago" contest. Taylor's script was chosen to be filmed as a public service announcement and Alan Weiss Productions out of New York paid a visit
to MHS to work with Taylor and her mother on the production.

Taylor's PSA will compete against two other student scripts from the Midwest,
with the winner being announced at the Chicago Auto Show.

Voting will be open to the public and we'll have all the details as soon as they are available.

Everyone at PNN is thankful for such an amazing opportunity!
