Andy Leverett, a University of North Florida business management major and a film studies minor, recently won the 2010 St. Johns Riverkeeper’s third annual PSA Video Contest in the college-level category.



The winning PSA is titled “Moments in My Life,” which tells the story of someone growing up on the river and reminds the viewer to “remember the things you love about the St. Johns River.”


“The St. Johns River is our greatest natural resource and the river is what brought people to Jacksonville in the first place,” said Leverett, a Southside resident. “I feel that we need to protect our river now for the sake of our future generations.”


He received $500 for his winning public service announcement video about protecting the St. Johns River. Blair Richardson, Leverett’s partner in the production company AB Positive Productions, also contributed to the video. The winners from the PSA contest were selected from a record 40 high school and college entries.
