1. Bulletin Boards and Exhibits
Use a highly traveled area of campus and develop a prevention message bulletin board on NCAAW topics.
2. Freebies and Giveaways
People are your best bulletin boards to make people aware of an issue. Have people sign a pledge card to make responsible decisions about alcohol, or sign a pledge to never drive when consuming alcohol, and give them a ribbon or pin to wear, or pens to use.
3. Visual Impact Events
Mock accidents, candlelight services, community parades, and athletic event half-times are all highly visible ways to promote prevention messages.
4. Fun Events
Sponsor an alcohol-free tailgate, fun run, mix up mocktails at an event, sponsor an “Up All Night” party at your recreation center, declare “Natural High” days on campus with fun games or kite give-aways.
5. Lunch Time Programs
Make the most of captive audiences at meal hours by sponsoring educational trivia contests with prizes. Host brown bag lunches on hot topics like the drinking age, zero tolerance laws, or fake IDs.
6. Use the Campus Media and Promote Events!
Get your campus newspaper, radio and television stations involved. For promotion, get Vince & Larry crash dummies to pose for photos and provide educational literature.
7. Show a Film
Films like “Leaving Las Vegas” or “When a Man Loves a Woman” set the scene for some great discussion. Include student leaders, faculty film buffs, and prevention people.
