Strategies for Sharing

  • Email your GIDAS members so that they can spread the word to younger siblings
  • Contact school administration so that the event info can be shared via school announcements/emails
  • Post on social media (I have attached a flyer below, courtesy of Isabella I. and Ananyaa A. from Public Relations Committee)
  • Talk to middle school students/freshmen you know–face-to-face interaction is always the best!

We are excited to provide this educational opportunity to the community. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out by replying to this email.
