Karen Umphress, IT and Project Manager for the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) presented this at CPSC’s ATV Safety Summit Oct. 11, 2012. The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) is a non-profit educational foundation that develops and provides programs and materials to further responsible off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation. Umphress shared NOHVCC's programs designed to communicate positive messages to kids regarding the safe and responsible use of ATVs. Since 2004, NOHVCC has delivered its highly successful "Adventure Trail" educational series. The multi-dimensional program is directed to youth riders and addresses twelve primary messages that promote safe and responsible use. The Adventure Trail trailer displays posters that graphically communicate each message. As the kids travel along the "trail," they complete a fun quiz and then are rewarded with an activity book, a CD with educational games, and other fun items to reinforce the messages. At its conference last month, NOHVCC unveiled its latest project to deliver safety messages to kids in their schools. NOHVCC entered a partnership with School Media, an organization that places messages regarding health and safety, to develop OHVs banners for placement on lockers, floors and walls in the schools. The messages include encouraging safety training, remaining sober and wearing protective gear.
