NAM NV Jr. Teen Films PSA

After being named 3rd runner-up to the Jr. Teen Title at the National Pageant just weeks ago, Paris Regan your National American Miss Nevada Jr. Teen wasted no time getting back to work in her community. Immediately after returning from Anaheim, California, Regan decided it was time to put her sign language skills to work through community service. She filmed a public service announcement for the hearing impaired. 

The commercial will appear on all television channels in Northern Nevada and in every Northern Nevada school. The commercials are designed to educate the hearing impaired community about a free life saving device that will alert those who cannot hear in the event of a fire.
