Week of March 4, 2019
Team Event Strategy: TRACK YOUR STORY
Keep track of your impact! Please keep track of your social media impact, the amount of people you reach in person, the events you hold and the places your speak, volunteer, partner, etc. This is how you make an impact and keep it going. Stay tuned for directions to help you explain your impact via qualitative and quantitative details.
March is Women in History Month and March 8th is International Women's Day. The campaign theme is #BalanceforBetter Better the balance, better the world. How will you celebrate women's achievements on Friday March 8, while calling for a more gender-balanced world? Check out the site for ideas. It is a perfect day to share your mission and accomplishments thus far from your Girls Build team. Share at school, on social media, and shout out to others as well!
What Challenges are you Facing? What challenges are you facing? Or share a challenge you overcame and how you did it. Share your stories and questions here. Or you can always email us: email@example.com
Final project Deadline: May 5th is the deadline to turn in your final website and an end-of-year video. The rubric and guidelines are found on our Curriculum page.
