Family time together is an excellent time to start meaningful conversations. One of the most popular times is a get together for the NFL Super Bowl. This contest can be done with your family or encourage your student to share this resource with their teachers for a classroom or school wide contest!!
Join Drug Free Action Alliance in their annual contest called: The Big Bowl Vote: Get in the Game

Save the Date – February 5, 2017

 

Last year, 112 million people watched the NFL Super Bowl with youth under 21 making up about 18% of the audience. Millions of youth were exposed to alcohol advertisements, and studies show that alcohol ads directly increase underage drinking. 

 

Meanwhile, 10,000 middle and high school students in 20 states participated in Drug Free Action Alliance’s Big Bowl Vote 2016 last year, which once again revealed how appealing those Super Bowl alcohol ads are to children by letting the kids tell us what their favorite and most memorable commercials were. It also provides a great and relevant discussion point for media literacy.

We’d like to invite you and or your students class to participate in the 2017 Big Bowl Vote.

The process is simple.

 

1. Friday, February 3 – Have questionnaire copies made and ready for distribution.

2. Sunday, February 5, 2017 – Watch the NFL Super Bowl game.

3. Monday, February 6, 2017 – Have your students or youth fill out the Big Bowl Vote questionnaire. Tally the results using a tally form we’ll provide, and email the results to us at a link we’ll send you.

 

Drug Free Action Alliance will use the results to issue a press release detailing the national findings.
