The ADRC-CW mission is focused on promoting choice and independence through personalized education, advocacy, and access to services that prevent, delay, and lessen the impacts of aging and disabilities in the lives of adults. Aligned with its mission, the ADRC-CW believes in being proactive to help keep older adults, adults with disabilities, and the entire community, safe and healthy. Therefore, we are launching a “Wear a Mask” contest and campaign. Encouraging and collaborating with residents throughout the ADRC-CW region (Langlade, Lincoln, Marathon, and Wood counties) to promote wearing masks.
With COVID-19 positive cases continuing to increase, the CDC recommends wearing a mask during the pandemic to protect and respect each other. The ADRC-CW would like to support and encourage the recommendations from the CDC by promoting mask wearing in public where social distancing is made difficult.
During this campaign, the ADRC-CW is asking the community members to help spread the word. We want older adults (60 years plus) and adults with disabilities (18-59 years) to send in their mask wearing selfies. The pictures should be of themselves wearing masks along with a slogan to promote mask wearing.
The ADRC-CW will select four photos and slogans to use on billboards throughout the region. Our community members will see themselves, friends, or family on the billboards, which will help to promote the importance of mask wearing to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19.
Winners will be notified the week of July 12, 2020. Photos and slogans selected, will also receive a gift and a feature story in our CHOICES newsletter.
Please help spread the word! We look forward to seeing your pictures and reading your creative slogans!
