.Public Service Announcement


Radio and television stations often broadcast free community announcements as a public
service to the areas they serve. You can submit written Public Service Announcement (PSA)
scripts to the public service directors of your local radio and cable television stations. Public
Service Announcements are often written to be ten or thirty seconds long when read aloud. When
requested, some stations will mail back a postcard to let you know the date and time of the PSA
broadcast. Consider including a color image of your school or program when providing PSAs to
cable stations. You can also pitch the idea of a free display to the local transportation authority to
reach users of buses, subways and the airport. The following is an example PSA created for the
United States Army Sergeants Major Academy using an actual event scheduled for May 2015.
