Only 37% of La Plata County middle and high school students perceive parents and other adults model positive, responsible behavior. (2015 Dev. Asset Survey) This concerning but improving perception inspired the Adult Role Model Campaign. This campaign invites young people to consider the role models in their lives and nominate them for an award! Winners will be selected to represent Bayfield, Ignacio and Durango as well as Latino and Native American communities.
Parents and youth serving professionals, have a conversation about what it takes to be a role model and encourage the youth in your life to nominate their role model. (Yes, you can help them with the nomination form if they need it.)
Youth who submit a complete nomination will be entered to win a Ipad mini 2 courtesy of Boys & Girls Club of La Plata County!
Nomination deadline is Friday April 29th.
Check out this role model lesson plan to start the conversation and introduce the campaign. Download the nomination form in color or black/white nomination form and campaign poster or please email me if you would like me to deliver campaign posters or nomination forms.
Here are year's winners:
