The entries were judged on line by the entire community. The contest was open to Lenawee students aged 12 to 20. In 1st Place and receiving a $1,000 scholarship from Lenawee Community Mental Health Authority was Mariah McKinney; Adrian Public Schools. The winner’s PSAs will be airing on 103.9, WLEN and for the remainder of 2019.

The first APS beneficiary we will highlight is the Springbrook Middle School Choir, led by Barb Schenck.
