  • Add a tool to the SPARK! Campaign Toolkit
    As a partner with the Georgia Vision Project, GSPRA has committed time, talent, and resources to support the work of the SPARK! Campaign by providing a "toolkit" with ideas, examples, and inspiration from around the state, including logos, videos, a monthly idea generator for celebrating education, web resources, and examples.
     
    Districts are welcome to review the contents of the SPARK! Campaign Toolkit for inspiration. GSPRA members are encouraged to submit materials (videos, stories, print materials, newspaper articles that you pitched, etc.) that illustrate how you celebrate success stories in your district. The Toolkit will be refreshed as additional resources are identified and as GSPRA members provide additional examples.
     
    If you have a suggestion for something that is needed or if you would like to submit an item for the Toolkit, let us know! Send your suggestion or submission to sparktoolkit@gmail.com.
