Our survey team put together a very basic Google form then hit the "streets" to get a pulse of how our school was feeling about Scaredy as president. After gaining a small sample from each grade, the survey team met with our campaign managers to analyze the data.
Digital Footprint Team
Helped start Scaredy's presence on Twitter. They also created commercials addressing the issues we found in our research. These commercials were posted to the account and sent to the intended target groups. Click on the image to take you to the student-centered account.
Speech Writing Team
Worked together to make an opening statement, which introduced the character, and more importantly, specifically addressed one of the major reported student qualms: that Scaredy Squirrel is not funny.
In addition, the team also referenced textual patterns that all Scaredy Squirrel books maintain.
Street Awareness Team
Created posters that focused on the great attributes Scaredy has. Then the posters were intentionally placed near and around the kindergarten and 3rd grade areas, as well as next to "Vote Bad Kitty" signs. They also helped create reusable Vote for Scaredy buttons.
