The 2017 Spangenberg Law Firm Video PSA College Scholarship Contest invited students who will be in college this fall and who share the firm's passion about important societal issues to create an original Public Service Announcement video on one of four important topics:

  • How can young people raise awareness and help prevent human trafficking?

The First Prize winner – chosen by the law firm's selection committee on the basis of originality, creativity, strength of message and ability to inspire viewers – is Ohio high school senior, Cade Santha. Mr. Santha, who created an impactful video PSA on the subject of campus safety, was chosen from among the more than 50 entries submitted by students from 22 states.

The Second Prize winner, chosen by the public, is Suzanna Thallman, a current student at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in Bowling Green, Ohio.
