Public Awareness Toolkit

Spark NH has created a Public Awareness Toolkit to help build awareness of the importance of early childhood. This toolkit includes a variety of printed materials, a PowerPoint presentation, and examples of outreach activities.

Spark NH has banners available for individuals and organizations to use and display at meetings, events, or anywhere else you can think of! There are sets of tall banners that are 3 feet wide and 6 feet tall and sets of table-top banners that are 12 inches wide and 18 inches tall. (Pictured: Banners on display at the Child Development Bureau's Annual Celebration of Early Childhood and Afterschool Professionals.)
If you or your organization are interested in borrowing a set of banners, click here to submit a request and a representative of Spark NH will be in contact with you shortly.
