North Carolina Film Student Scores Big in Bicycle Safety Video Contest

Fayetteville teen Terrell Grice has been named the first place winner of HensonFuerst’s annual cycling safety public service announcement contest.

Rocky Mount, North Carolina (PRWEB) May 25, 2010 -- Promoting safety starts with good communication, a little creativity, and a video camera. Terrell Grice, a junior at Douglas Byrd High School, proved just that when he won the HensonFuerst Video Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest, which challenged area teens to produce videos about cycling safety.

“I wanted to show how commonly used excuses for improper bicycle riding can cause detrimental or dangerous results,” said Terrell, who hopes to attend New York Film Academy and pursue a career in filmmaking. “No matter how good an excuse is, it’s not going to keep you safe.”

“We’ve taken an active role in bicycle safety because we know how important it is,” said attorney David Henson. “But it’s so powerful when creative people like Terrell take the lead in getting the word out. All this year’s contestants should be applauded for their efforts.”

During a ceremony at Douglas Byrd High School on May 26, several members of HensonFuerst Law Firm presented Terrell with his prize, an Apple MacBook with professional movie-making software and local television placement of his PSA that will air later this month. A $500 donation also was given to Douglas Byrd High School.

“I work with a student film group called The TAG Crew, and we will use the new laptop to create music videos, public service announcements, educational bits, and more!” Terrell explained. “This new laptop will lift a great weight off of my shoulders.”

The contest resulted in many outstanding entries, and the firm included two honorable mention prizes for Jordan Adams of the Durham School of the Arts, and Frank Brechbiel of Sanderson High School. They each received $75 for their entries. Additionally, students who didn’t place in the contest each received $25 for their time and hard work.

Last year’s winner, Clay Allsopp, hasn’t rested since receiving his $1,500 prize. He invested his prize into creating iPhone apps, one of which has been named as one of the “Top 50 Family Games” and has been downloaded more than 100,000 times.

The attorneys and staff members at HensonFuerst have made it their mission to promote bicycle safety and help keep their community safe for everyone.

The HensonFuerst Health Initiative
To recognize the importance of giving back, the firm established the HensonFuerst Health Initiative, a comprehensive plan that encompasses all of the law firm’s community service efforts.
