Why is Media Important?
Contacting a media representative with a public service announcement (PSA), media release, or an idea for a radio talk show or magazine feature can be intimidating. But remember: you are doing the media a service by alerting them to important activities that are happening in the community. As long as you treat them with respect, they will appreciate your ideas and your input.
If you want the media to know your chapter, you must first know the media! Pay attention to radio, television, and newspaper reports. Ask yourself why they’re covering what they do and make special note of stories related to FCCLA programs.
The award recognizes chapters who have excelled in planning and implementing exemplary public relations campaign to increase public awareness of FCCLA and Family and Consumer Sciences Education.
To honor a media outlet whose responsibilities are not related to Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) that has covered significant FCCLA activities and is giving continued service through press coverage to the local, state, and/or national organization.
