Win a $1,000 post-secondary scholarship or a $500 Team Travel Stipend for your team
For the Scholarship: Students will create an individual project that follows these guidelines:
After reviewing the LifeSmarts U Lessons on Drug Facts Label and Medicine 101 and the Scholastic Over the Counter Medicine Safety Program design a social media message, presentation, or an educational product that will communicate the importance of OTC safety to others. The focus should be one or more of the following topics: safe use, storage, and disposal of medicines, and understanding the Drug Facts label. Your project can review general safety information or have a detailed focus on one aspect.
- Use social media platforms such as Instagram or TikTok to broadcast the importance of OTC medicine safety to peers.
- Mentor younger students with in-person or virtual presentations.
- Design visual displays including posters, infographics, trivia cards, table tents, games, and newsletters for a broad community audience. The type of educational material you create will depend on your audience and where it will be used or displayed.
- Implement and evaluate your project.
