A program for students called "Get Reel with Your Dreams" started by Sade Baderinwa three years ago held its annual PSA contest at WABC Friday.

Students walked away with $30,000 in college scholarships provided by the Walt Disney Company.

High schools from across the tri-state area competed.

The High School of Art and Design were big winners this year, taking third place was Elana Havas for her PSA on teen suicide.

Second place went to Jaquan Franklin for what he said about HIV.

But, top prize went to Truman High School.

Ian Denton and Ernesto Gonzales won with "Words Unspoken about Child Abuse".

Disney, WABC, Lincoln Center Institute and New York Women and Film and Television are partners in the program.

WABC will open it up to students in the tri-state area again this fall.
