Brenna Holmes, from Centreville, and Iveon Sprangle from Goldsboro, N.C. 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 (WSSU) 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.

Correction: An earlier version of this article stated that Holmes was from Goldsboro and Sprangle was from Centreville. It is the other way around.
