WINSTON-SALEM -- Breanna Holmes from Goldsboro, a student at Winston-Salem State University, along with fellow WSSU student Iveon Sprangle of Centreville, Va., won first place in the radio category of the 2012 Freedom of Speech PSA competition with a 30-second public service announcement they developed.

The two Winston-Salem State University students were competing with nearly 200 communications students from across the country to develop either a television or radio PSA on what freedom of speech means to them and how it plays a part in their world. The competition is presented by the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation and the Broadcast Education Association.

In addition to receiving a $3,000 scholarship prize for first place, the winning entry created by Holmes and Sprangle will be made available to radio stations across the country for possible use on-air.
