The LifeSmarts OTC Medicine Safety Mentoring Project
LifeSmarts participants have an exciting community service opportunity: to become over-the-counter (OTC) medicine safety mentors. Students attending the 2023 National LifeSmarts Championship will have the opportunity to use their outreach efforts to qualify for team travel stipends and scholarships. Check back to learn more!

The OTC Medicine Safety Mentoring Project is designed with LifeSmarts students in mind, and based on educational materials produced by Scholastic and the American Association of Poison Control Centers.
The project promotes safe medicine storage, safe use of OTC medicine, and understanding the Drug Facts label. High school students demonstrate leadership by teaching 5th and 6th graders about medicine safety. The lesson is easy to adapt to classroom, club, and community settings.
LifeSmarts thanks Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. for sponsoring this project.
Use this project with your group, to give back, and to fulfill community service requirements. More information about scholarships and travel stipend opportunities will be announced later this fall.
