Teen winners named in ‘Say Yes to the Test’

Posted 12/17/12

PROVIDENCE – Zoe Prescott and Bomina Belden, who co-produced their 30-second video for a class project at Westerly High School, won first place at the annual World AIDS Day Red Ribbon Rally held recently at the Met school.

Prescott and Belden produced a live stop-action video, public-service announcement that emphasized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 20 percent of the 1.1 million people in the U.S. living with HIV today do not know they have it and risk infecting others.

The video encouraged routine testing so that those who know they are HIV-positive can help prevent spreading the disease through prevention practices.

Second-place winners Mike Heiberger and Austin Cilley, also from Westerly High School, created a video to portray a nurse encouraging a patient to get tested for HIV and explaining how simple the test is. •
