Youth Group Project for 2011
Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties
Descriptor of Project:This project is a tri-county media campaign for Youth Groups in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties to show teens and adults that most teens do not engage in high-risk behaviors such as alcohol, tobacco, drug use, sexual activity, and violent behavior. The “Most Teens Don’t” committee of Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties invites your youth group to participate in a winter/spring project for 2011 and/or a fall 2011 initiative!
Each project must include the following:
A kick-off event coordinated around the campaign
Willingness to assist with pre/post surveying your materials (“Most Teens Don’t” staff will assist)
Assist with Alcohol Awareness Month
One community event
Suggested project ideas:
Design a website for “Most Teens Don’t.”
Create public service announcements for TV and/or radio.
Design a billboard for use in the Tri-County area
Create a video-clip dub to inspire healthy choices (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPcb7lX9Jhg).
Design a tri-county (Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties) logo for “Most Teens Don’t.” Logo should NOT be group specific to distinguish us from the Jackson campaign.
Reach Out Now/Teach In event (if applicable for your district)
Design a video for use at movie theater trailers
