A group of Penn-Trafford High School students competed in late April at the Propaganda Competition hosted by Greensburg Salem High School. The object of the competition was to analyze propaganda media and identify persuasive techniques using critical thinking skills. Students from Greensburg Salem, Burrell, and Belle Vernon also participated.
