Peer Educators Earn Awards at the 2017 UDS Symposium

HPSA staff and Peer Educators traveled to Austin earlier this month to attend the Be the Dude's U in the Driver Seat Symposium. They learned about tools and information that will help them educate other college students about the dangers of driving under the influence. In true Maverick fashion, they also came back with several awards:

 • 3rd place and $250 for the 2017 UDS Cup (Points were tallied for all alcohol-focused programming using the U in the Driver Seat campaign. UT Arlington earned the 3rd most points out of the 19 participating Texas colleges and universities.)

• 2nd place for the 2017 Safe Spring Break Pledge Contest (Peer educators canvassed the campus for students pledging to have a safe spring break.)

• 2nd place for the Driving the Message PSA Contest

• Outstanding Advisor Award

• Presenter Award

• Brianna Lewis was awarded a $250 scholarship for being an Outstanding College Advisory Board Member

Congratulations HPSA and Peer Educators for another outstanding job!

Fall 2017 event dates will be posted soon.
