                                           How Do you PTA?


National PTA is launching a new membership campaign this summer that focuses on the value of PTA and the idea that PTA is no longer a noun -- it's a verb -- an action plan working to support the success of all children!


You can help by submitting a 10 second video answering the question, "How Do You PTA?"

Hello,

 We hope you and your family members are healthy and safe during this time. As a valuable member of our PTA family, we wanted you to be the first to know what we've been working on over the last few months.

 We are so excited to tell you that we are launching a new membership campaign this summer—and we need your help! The campaign will focus on the value of PTA and the idea that PTA is no longer a noun, it’s a verb—an action plan working to support the success of all children.

 So how can you help? We want you to record a short video answering the question: “How do you PTA?” Your submission could be featured as part of a video that we will release when we launch our campaign. Instructions for recording and submitting your video are included at the end of this email.

 If you don’t want to film a video of yourself, you can still participate! Please email your answer to NationalPTA@Edelman.com. Send your submission by May 1 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

 We look forward to learning how you PTA!

Thank you,
Your friends at National PTA



 How to Record and Submit Your Video

1.  Prepare

We want to know “How do you PTA?” Please practice your answer.
There is no wrong way to PTA but examples can include anything from “At Waynewood Elementary, we PTA to raise money for art supplies and science equipment” to “I advocate for stronger school safety policies” or “How do we PTA? We appreciate teachers!” and “I PTA to bring parents and teachers together.”
Find a well-lit location, preferably with natural light, but make sure you are not lit from behind to avoid dark shadows.

2.  Record

Record your video horizontally.
In 10 seconds or less, answer “How do you PTA?”
Repeat your answer three times, counting to five between each answer.
Complete the video by stating your name, city, school and email address. Please spell out your email address.

3.  Submit

Save your video file using the following naming convention “FirstName_LastName_SchoolName”.
Upload your video to our PTA Dropbox Folder at https://www.dropbox.com/request/9Am8PtngK0tYNkcYD8dY. If you never have used Dropbox, you will need to create an account.
If your video is selected, we will contact you via email and provide you with a video release form.
