AOSN Lights On! Afterschool 2011 Challenge
As communities around the nation are celebrating the importance of afterschool by hosting Lights On! Afterschool celebrations, we want to make sure that Arkansas is well-represented with a strong voice in support of afterschool. This day offers an opportunity for your afterschool community to build relationships and visibility on a local level. Hosting a Lights On! Afterschool event in your community contributes to the strong, unified message about the importance of afterschool in Arkansas.
This year, AOSN is encouraging all afterschool programs to host Lights On! Afterschool events by sponsoring the “AOSN Lights On! Afterschool 2011 Challenge”. We are eager to have a record setting year and increase the number of registered events to 150! Are you up for the challenge?
If you are ready to participate in the AOSN Lights On! Afterschool 2011 Challenge, you will need to review the Challenge criteria and complete the Challenge application. For more information (CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE APPLICATION).
Once your event is complete we are anxious to know about your successes. The “2011 Lights On! Afterschool Event Report” form (Click here to download the report form) is a great way for AOSN to learn about the exciting events that took place in the state. Download and submit these forms to Laveta Wills-Hale at firstname.lastname@example.org. At your event did you receive media coverage? Acknowledgment in your local paper? Capture some great pictures? We would love to see your celebrations so please hold on to this information and we will inform you where to send media clips, newspaper articles, and photos so that we can post that information to the Lights On! Afterschool Media Gallery following this year’s celebration.
