The My Way To Be Teen Video Challenge
We’re inviting your students to create 20 to 45 second teen health videos. Teens can create videos on equipment as ubiquitous as smartphones and enter the My Way To Be Teen Video Challenge for their chance to win a MacBook Air. And with monthly teen health topics like “healthy relationships” and “resisting peer pressure,” you can use the Challenge as homework or extra credit assignments to reinforce in-class lessons.
Teen Wallet Cards
With the SafeTeens Wallet Card, teens are never without the information they need. Available for free through Maternal and Family Health Services, these wallet cards compile the best web and phone resources on STD testing and treatment, pregnancy testing and birth control. Professionals who work with teens can order multiple packs of 50 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Cards available in English and Spanish.
