PennDOT pedestrian safety video receives
2 Telly Awards
PennDOT’s pedestrian safety video for elementary school students, “Walk this Way,” recently won bronze in the training and safety categories for the 2014 Telly Awards.
“We take pride in our mission to make travel safer in Pennsylvania, and educating our children on safe behaviors is an important part of that mission,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “As we continue to reach out to our customers in new ways, we’re encouraged that our video was selected as a winner in this prestigious competition.”
The video is part of the department’s four-video series aimed at educating children, motorists and parents about pedestrian safety. “Walk this Way” uses Guy Walker, an animated pedestrian sign character, to show elementary aged children how to walk safely.
The videos, produced by PennDOT and JPL, can be viewed on the department’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/pennsylvaniaDOT.
According to the Telly Awards, the initiative was founded in 1978 to honor excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials and aims to inspire, promote and support creativity. In all categories, the Telly Awards annually receive over 12,000 entries from all of the states and many foreign countries.
