toolbox When Actions of the Few Fill Needs of the Many N ASCAR reporter and SkillsUSA alumna Wendy Venturini recently helped SkillsUSA produce public service announcements. Help spread the word! As a class, watch and listen to the audio and video versions of the PSAs at: www. skillsusa.org/educators/psa.shtml . Next, split into two groups: “radio” and “television.” Each group should identify three local stations that might consider airing the PSAs. Contact the stations (find their information online) to see what their PSA submission requirements are. (The files on the Web page above can be downloaded and burned to CD or DVD.) Regroup as a class and share your findings. Also, discuss strategies for sharing the PSAs through social media like Facebook and Twitter. Sharing what SkillsUSA means to you with media and peers can go a long way in reaching others and helping the organi-zation continue to grow. For more tips, download the Marketing Toolkit at: www. skillsusa.org/students/mktgtools.shtml . • Concealed talent brings no reputation. — D esiDerius e rasmus Find the photo, win a prize No, the picture on the left isn’t abstract art.
