ABERDEEN, S.D. (KELO) — An Aberdeen student is sending an important message to kids all across the country.

With the help of some friends, Senior Katelyn Ryan put together a powerful public service announcement about distracted driving.

Ryan entered the video into a national contest and won first place.

That means her PSA will be aired on more than 60 television stations.

She also received $2,700.

She plans to donate some of the money to Central’s Students Against Destructive Decisions chapter. The rest will go toward college.
