Centreville's Brenna Holmes Wins Freedom of Speech Award

Brenna wins first place in the 2012 Freedom of Speech PSA competition.

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.
