Best Campaign Competition

Students will plan and implement a year-long, student-led campaign that reflects the program theme, Be In The Zone. A campaign consists of many activities, events, and the use of different media – all focused on a common theme. This will be an opportunity to showcase their creativity, planning, and leadership abilities and make an impact in their school and community. Each school’s campaign will be evaluated by a panel of adult and teen judges. The Best Campaign Competition consists of the following components:
