On May 14, 2021, the FBI Houston CAAA joined Crime Stoppers, T Mobile and other sponsors to present first, second, and third place awards to high school students who produced 30-45-second public service announcements to warn of the dangers of sextortion. Sextortion is defined as a threat to expose sexual images in order to extort something from an individual. In most cases, these threats come from strangers a teen may meet online.

The First Place award was presented to Cypress Ridge High School’s Mob Squad Media ($5,000 for the school and a Sony PlayStation 5 for each student) ; Second Place went to Cypress Lakes High School Spartan Studios ($2,500 for the school and an IPad for each student); and Third Place was won by SFA High School’s Justice Enforcers ($1,500 for the school and an Air Pod for each student).

More than 1,000 high schools were invited to participate. Our FBI Houston Citizens Academy Alumni Association contributed $9,000. Photo credits: Crime Stoppers of Houston.
