TVs, bulletin boards, or other media are placed around the school to showcase school achievements, kind messages, and positive quotes.

How To:

Find a space in your school where your inspirED team can display your messages. Does your school use TVs or monitors, bulletin boards, posters, daily announcements, newsletters, or newspapers?

Decide what your message will be. Consider themes or categories, like student quotes, photos of student activities, individual or group achievements, or messages of kindness.

Gather a group of students to curate content. Include multiple forms of media when possible, including visuals, audio, or video.

Tips & Suggestions:

  • Consider having more than one display area.
  • Announce to the school this is a project for students, by students.
  • Get everyone from different clubs and the general student body to suggest content.

Fast Facts:
