A Chelmsford resident was one of three Nashoba Valley Technical High School students who recently took home first place in a public service announcement video contest.

Freshman James Lisciotto, a Chelmsford resident, starred in a PSA called "Take Time to Get Involved" that was produced by junior John Stavro and featured freshman Aislinn Wolfe and English teacher Jeremy Slotnick.

The PSA won first prize in the Middlesex Partnerships for Youth’s contest to produce a public-service announcement about the benefits of community service.

In the video, Lisciotto plays a student who participated in a fundraiser to earn money for a local food pantry. By the end of the PSA, Lisciotto helps spread word throughout the school and raises more money than he initially anticipated.

Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan invited the students to appear on a recent FOX25 newscast and revealed that the PSA would be aired at high schools around the county next school year.

Another team from Nashoba Tech was also a finalist in the contest, the school said. The PSA called “CommUnity,” was produced by sophomores Cynthia Long of Pepperell and Andrew Mahoney of Townsend, and included sophomores Amber Joyce of Pepperell and Camron Clark of Chelmsford.

“I am so proud of the work of Middlesex County students in creating these videos,” Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan. “All of the entries were creative in their interpretation of this year’s theme. We wanted students to think about their role in their community, both inside and outside of school. … When students create the message, they can motivate their peers and effect change.”
