Katelyn Wheeler Wins National Video Contest

The New York Organ Donor Network announced today that Katelyn Wheeler, a video/film major from Owosso, has won the contest they sponsored to produce a public service announcement promoting organ donation.

Nearly 10,000 people in New York City alone are awaiting organ donation, and Katelyn’s PSA may be used in their newest ad campaign. “It’s the first time I’ve ever entered a contest like this,” Katelyn said after learning she had won. Five semifinalists were chosen from all the entries and the videos were posted on Facebook where people could vote for their favorite. Katelyn’s video garnered the most votes earning her a 6-day, 5-night trip for two to California, including tickets to the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl game.
