Pitching EMUS at the Winter Workshop

January 8, 2014: Student leaders from STF chapters, teacher advisors and supporters reviewed EMUS campaign progress and prepared for spring advocacy meetings with elected officials and international representatives. Leaders discussed the October Bede Sheppard visit and learned details of the Santa Clarita Valley EMUS library events and Sierra Canyon’s all-school EMUS presentation. Participants broke into groups to plan for the upcoming semester and brainstormed for network connections and pledged to raise total posts to 1,000 photos on Tumblr by Valentine’s Day – “For the Love of Education.” Leaders also practiced “pitching” the EMUS campaign in role-play activities with “representatives” of the media, US Congress and international Consul Generals.
