The WAVE (Web Audio Video Excellence) Awards recognizes the best web, audio and video media productions created in the Greater Madison area. Recently, “The Statisticks of Marshfield,” a Marshfield Area United Way video, won the WAVE Award in the PSA/Public service category at the Wave Award show.  “The Wave awards are kind of like the commercial Emmy Awards of Madison - it's pretty competitive and it’s judged by media/communication veterans from outside Wisconsin,” said John Holcomb, producer of “Statisticks.”

"The Statisticks of Marshfield" is a short video that takes you on a journey through adolescence with Jamie and Jamie. You will learn how two best friend's lives take different paths and how your investment in Marshfield Area United Way can help the "Jamie's" of Marshfield achieve their full potential. The video was created to bring attention to data collected from responses to the 2012 Wisconsin Youth Risk Behavior Survey. The survey is administered to local students in eighth, tenth, and twelfth grades and is given with anonymity. Students are asked questions on various topics, such as: distracted driving, violence related behaviors, bullying, drug and alcohol use, suicide and healthy lifestyle behaviors.

Jamie and Jamie are more than stick figures and statistics in a video.   They are your child’s friend at school, your co-workers children and your next-door neighbors. Please take a minute to watch “The Statisticks of Marshfield” on Marshfield Area United Way’s website at www.marshfieldareaunitedway.org and click on “click here to watch ‘The Statisticks of Marshfield’ image.”
