#VoiceOfJustice Video Contest

​A partnership between the Office of the Attorney General and the Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programs

#VoiceOfJustice video contest is a collaboration between the Office of the Attorney General and the Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programs to help raise awareness of sexual assault on college campuses during April’s Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.

Winners Announced
A panel of survivors and victim advocates selected the video “Stand with us” as the overall $500 video prizewinner. Students enrolled in Dr. Emily Bonistall Postel’s 400-level sociology course at the University of Kentucky submitted the video, and students Trent Patrick and Raenah Hawkins led the production team.

The video, “We all need to speak up,” produced by Western Kentucky University SGA and co-produced by students Sam Kirby and Student Body President Jay Todd Richey, won the $500 “Viral Video” award by receiving the most views on Beshear’s YouTube channel.
