Sandy Hook Promise wins Emmy for 'Teenage Dream' PSA

Sandy Hook Promise has won an Emmy Award for its “Teenage Dream” Public Service Announcement.  The award, presented on Saturday, was for Outstanding Commercial.  Co-founder Nicole Hockley, whose son Dylan was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary nearly a decade ago, accepted the award at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony.  Hockley says awareness of the problem, and its solutions, are critical first steps to end the epidemic of gun violence.  Another gun violence prevention ad, from Change the Ref's, was presented with the same award.  The "Teenage Dream” PSA encourages people to learn and act on warning signs that may lead to gun violence.  Singer Katy Perry donated her award-winning song “Teenage Dream" for the ad featuring school shooting survivors. Sandy Hook Promise also won an Emmy for their "Back-to-School Essentials" PSA and was nominated for their "Point of View" PSA.
