The goal for our project is to inform and protect against the dangers of speeding, specifically in teen drivers.
The main target audience for our project is freshman, sophomore, juniors seniors, school staff, parents, and community members.
This project is meant to spread awareness and safety tips regarding safe driving, specifically the dangers of speeding. We consistently find ways to spread the message to the student body, as well as staff and community members, with PSA videos, a bulletin board, hung wear everyone can see, brochures, pledges, contests, etc.
We held monthly meetings to review and inform about the happenings in the club. At every meeting, there is a sign in sheet, as well as sheets to sign up to help the club. Some of the extra sign up sheets were for making a t-shirt design, and helping to create innovative ways to spread our message.
Use of resources:
As part of our project we encourage everyone to spread the message, and even provide them with brochures that they could hand out, or hang up on community boards. We also utilize social media to help spread the word to a larger audience.
Use of media:
Most frequently, we use social media, such as Instagram, to help spread awareness about the dangers of speeding, and what our club is all about. This not only encourages our members to participate in our events, but also makes it more accessible to others that are not a part of the school community, to still engage and be a safe driver.
Our project touches on many aspects of safe driving, with still having a main focus on one specifically, the dangers of speeding. Our message is publicly spread, encouraging more people to learn about safe driving practices. We specifically target the teen audience, such as high school students, who are not only new to driving, but may not know as much about the dangers that come with it. This project helps to eliminate the unknowns these high school students having, making them safer drivers all around.
One way we are measuring the progress of our project is by seeing the increasing numbers of students, faculty, and community members sign the safe driver pledge. We also observe the increasing amount of brochures, and information given out to the community.
By teaching the students at young age the proper safety measures that come along with driving, allows for them to start their foundation off strong, and only build on their safe driving knowledge.
Unexpected Lessons Learned:
One of the most surprising outcomes of our project was the audience it reached. It was mainly expected to stay within the school community, but it was expanded into the surround areas as well.
