  103. 103. Challenges<br />Moving the youth past the drinking and driving message! Early in the contest it seemed like that is all the videos were!<br />The message we want to convey is Don’t Drink Underage!<br />Need the right “Public Relations” person to bring all the necessary partners to the table<br />
  104. 104. Challenges<br />Getting to Outcomes! <br />Having all the pieces of the puzzle to create a new vision<br />Education<br />Media Activity<br />Youth Leadership<br />Recognition<br />
  105. 105. Challenges<br />Recognizing everyone for all their efforts. Do it step by step, grabbing partners along the way. <br />Start small, do that well, then add another piece.<br />
  106. 106. Challenges<br />Finding ways to utilize youth ideas and components<br />Time commitment! <br />Getting to all schools with education<br />Coordinating all aspects and not leaving anyone out<br />Always coming across as new and fresh!<br />Encouraging participation even when not winning a big prize.<br />
  107. 107. Conclusion<br />In the beginning we could have written commercials and PSAs by thirty, forty, or fifty year olds.<br />By allowing youth to directly impact their peers through creating their own PSAs and then recognizing these efforts becomes a win for all.<br />
  108. 108. Conclusion<br />We found that for every person involved in making a video, at least ten other people had some involvement in the video as well<br />Think about all the students that have been involved in making videos or any of the other youth leadership activities in Keep-It-Real and think about how many people we have actually reached.<br />
