Objective: Clearly state the objective of your project.
The objective of the project is to spread awareness about slowing down on back/ rural roads.
The target audience is the community at large, but especially the students of Salem Tech who are new to driving.
Execution: Describe your project and its implementation
The project was mainly conducted through social media. This was because of the pandemic. We started an Instagram and posted 66 posts from October 19, 2020- May 5, 2021 along with numerous stories.
Teamwork: Show how you worked as a team in designing and implementing your project (examples: sign-in-sheets at meetings, photos of group working on tasks).
We had monthly meetings from October to April of the project. We worked together virtually by finding facts about driving safe and posted them throughout the campaign. We had an active group chat that was used widely throughout the school year. We also ordered t-shirts with our logo to be worn as a safe driving committee.
Use of resources: Show how you used local resources to help identify. deliver, assess and present your project (examples: nearby colleges, local police departments, persons affected by teen crashes, local/county/state governments, local businesses).
We used our t-shirts to spread the word about our project and shared what we had to say across our social media page.
Use of media: Document how you made use of media in your project (examples: local radio, TV, newspapers, social media, websites, video, PSAs)
We used Instagram to mainly conduct our project as that has the most influence in our school and community.
Thoroughness: Show how your project demonstrates an understanding of teen driving safety
We targeted the students of Salem Tech by spreading the word and showing that their fellow students cared about safe driving.
Impact: Explain how you measured change and impact of your project.
We would say that our impact was respectable. Most of the school had heard about our message and we shared the best we could across our social medias.
Sustainability: How will your project have a lasting effect within your target group?
Our project will have a long lasting effect because of the way that it is on our t-shirts and social media. Those who have seen the logo will not forget it.
Unexpected Lessons Learned: Describe any unintended results that came out of your project.
We learned how to co0rdinate as and keep up with deadlines. We got what we wanted done and completed many of our goals because of this. Many of those who are in the committee have not worked and coordinated in a large group. However, they fearlessly took positions of importance and stepped out of their comfort zone.
Stipend Reporting: Your school received a stipend to support your Champion School Teen Driving Safety Project. Additionally, any funds that you raised as a result of your project must be reinvested into transportation safety. The purpose of this report is to itemize expenditures for your project that were paid from the stipend
