The 30-second television PSA was directed by Tyrel Ventura, the governor's 19-year-old son, and produced by Bill Hillsman of North Woods Advertising. Tyrel Ventura and Hillsman will attend the public debut of the public service announcement.

The debut will take place in MnSCU offices, Room 502, World Trade Center, 30 E. 7th Street.
