PEDAW Campaign Idea: Inspiration Station!


  • Encourage participants
    to identify people they find inspiring for meaningful characteristics.
    Encourage participants to see past physical characteristics when
    evaluating those they look up to or aspire to be.
  • Get participants in the
    habit of thinking about their friends and their loved ones in a way that
    has nothing to do with physical attributes.
  • Encourage people to
    identify non-appearance based traits in others that they admire and
Supplies Needed: 
  • Sharpies or dark pens
  • Brightly colored
    post-it notes
  • Table
  • Wall to hang notes
  • Any event-related
  • Wristbands to give out
  • Anything else you can
    think of!
Event Set Up and Implementation: 
  • Set up the table in a
    place that has a heavy traffic flow.
  • Decorate the table with
    signs and decorations that will draw attention.
  • Ask participants who
    stop by to think of three people that they know who inspire them and write
    what is inspiring about that person on a post it note (without the name).
  • There are no limits on
    what they may find inspiring about these people except that they cannot
    focus on appearance. For example: because of their kindness, aptitude in
    science, dedication to soccer or dance, their commitment to health, the
    degree to which they care about other people, volunteer activities, social
    skills, etc.
  • Display the notes to
    encourage additional participants to stop by and do the same.
  • Explain PEDAW, the
    wristbands, and what it’s all about.
  • Be creative with how
    you want to implement this!
  • Take pictures of event
    and send to Amy to post on up on PEDAW blog!
