Welcome to the Academic Integrity PSA Contest!
Character.org has assumed the administration of the Academic Integrity PSA Contest as a national competition. Please visit this website for more information.
The Academic Integrity PSA Program is a video production contest available to all high school students with the goal to increase student awareness and commitment to academic integrity. All registrations must be sponsored by a school faculty member or a recognized school club adviser.
Students will have until April 15, 2022 to write, shoot, edit and submit their academic integrity PSAs at this link on the Character.org website.
Students and faculty are encouraged to view the brief PSA Judging Guide video that explains the contest judging criteria and highlights the need to focus PSAs on values that support academic integrity, such as honesty, respect, responsibility, fairness and perseverance.
The contest places a greater priority on increasing the awareness of the values supporting academic integrity as opposed to the negative consequences of cheating. Although the latter is useful, the aspirational goal of values supporting academic integrity are more inspiring.
All submissions should be positive, innovative and original work of students to promote the importance of academic integrity.
Our PSA Program previously concluded each year with a Celebration Dinner for the video producers, their teachers and family. Pictured above are the PSA contest winners that attended the 2019 celebration.
