Public Service Announcements

A public service announcement (PSA) or community service announcement (CSA) is a non-commercial advertisement broadcast on radio or television, ostensibly for the public good. PSAs are intended to modify public attitudes by raising awareness about specific issues; health and safety are the most common topics. A typical PSA is part of a public awareness campaign to inform or educate the public about an issue such as safe walking or driving behavior.

Sample PSA:

  • Kirkland, Washington has two excellent examples of pedestrian safety PSAs, produced by the Kirkland Senior Council, the Kirkland Steppers, and the Kirkland Youth Council.
