BARNWELL, AB – A 13-year old southern Alberta girl is featured in an internationally award winning video, which encourages kids just like her to play safe.

Neveah Fehr lives in Barnwell. She lost her right foot in a lawn mower accident and she was featured in a short PSA for War Amps last spring.

The 30-second film, titled “Neveah says PLAYSAFE!”, recently won gold in the “causes and awareness campaign” category at the 2021 Communicator Awards in Kentucky, and platinum in the “PSA” category at the 2021 WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival.

The award winning video is featured on the War Amps YouTube channel.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
