As I discussed in my last blog, our group was trying to find ways to promote ISO throughout the Baton Rouge community, such as Baton Rouge Parents Magazine, 225 Magazine and the Advocate’s Faith section. We also attended the YMCA Summer Camp Expo. Since then, we held our major event for ISO.
The ISO Sports Fair was a big success. We had about 45 people attend the event. Although our evite was sent out to about 500 people, ML knew the attendance would be small. We felt that the 45 attendees was a solid number of people. The event went over very well. Everyone enjoyed the food, and the two children who won the door prizes were very excited. Once lunch was over, ML, Matt and Jordan brought the parents into another room to discuss ISO. Brannon, Krystal, Miracle and I brought the kids into the gym to play games. After the event, everyone seemed very pleased, especially the children. Here are some pictures from the event:
Now that the actual event is out of the way, finishing up with school has become my main focus, and deadlines must be followed. Just like in any Public Relations work, school also involves many deadlines. Whether it is finishing up the campaign, finishing my Media Law project or taking exams, times are getting a little stressful. The best way to handle this stress is to take one thing at a time.
Not much is left to do for our campaign. Our campaign book is almost complete, and editing will be our final step. We have also promised ML that we would make an ISO flier. Although he has not given us the necessary information yet, we have our design in mind. The flier will be a big item for ISO to use to promote outside of the church. Hopefully they will be able to use it for years to come.
In my MC 3080 Media Law class, we have our final service learning project to complete. I attended Southeast Middle School five times to read and teach children about cyberbullying. It was very interesting, and hopefully some of the students learned some new things. Our final project was to create a website to inform children of the effects of cyberbullying, and this is our project, MC 3080 Media Law Project. Hopefully students will look at our website and learn some things they did not know.
Even though things are a little stressful right now, the main goal is graduation. With only a few weeks left, there can be no room for error. Once all of my projects and finals are over, it will feel great to relax and then graduate.
