Student Ambassador Program

Want to be an even bigger part of Engage 2012? Join our Student Ambassador Program, and become one of our representatives!

As a Student Ambassador, you can spread the word about the challenge in your community to increase student participation. Tell your friends and classmates, share the website on Facebook or other social media websites, make an announcement in the school paper – how you do it is up to you.

Any K-12 student who is part of school or community organization can sign up to be a Student Ambassador  – just fill out our online application form!

If you’re under the age of 18, you’ll need to print out this Parental Release and Consent form and ask a parent or legal guardian to sign it first. Then scan the form back onto a computer as a .pdf file. You’ll be asked to upload the .pdf when you fill out our online participation form. You can also find this form on our Forms page.

Why become a Student Ambassador?

In addition to motivating students in your school and community to make their voices heard, the two top performing ambassadors from each region will receive a copy of Adobe Premiere Elements. Students participating in the challenge will have a chance to name the student from their school or community organization that motivated them to participate

I’m a already a Student Ambassador! What are some ways I can increase student participation at my school or in my community?

Great question! Below are 11 ways you can get more students involved and Engaged. Have a good idea that isn’t listed below? Send an email to ambassadors@engage2012.org with your suggestions, and we’ll add them to this list!

  1. With your teacher’s permission, make an announcement about the challenge in class. If you’ve already submitted an entry, share your video with the class and tell them how you made it.
  2. Ask your principal if you can schedule multiple classroom announcements throughout your school.
  3. If your school has a PDA or another electronic announcement system, ask your principal or another administrator if you can make a school-wide announcement about the challenge.
  4. With your school’s permission, schedule a presentation in the school auditorium.
  5. If you’re a member of a student publication, include a story or short blurb about the challenge on your publication’s website or in your next issue.
  6. Publish a short announcement about the challenge on your personal website or blog.
  7. Share the website (www.engage2012.org) on social media websites such as Facebook, ScuttlePad, and giantHello.
  8. Make an announcement in a school club or community organization that you belong to.
  9. Ask for camera equipment for your school! If you’re under the age of 18, ask a teacher or parent to join our Equipment Donations Forum and make a request for camera or recording equipment.
  10. Submit a video entry. Other students in your community will want to know what you’re working on. If you don’t want to make the video by yourself, ask one to two other friends or classmates to help you.
  11. Share this poster we’ve created with your students and colleagues! Print out copies and hang the poster up around your school or community, or send out digital copies.
