October was first proclaimed Head Start Awareness Month by President Ronald Reagan on October 22, 1982. Ever since, October has been a month for our community to celebrate the life changing impact of Head Start.
Here are example activities from previous years. Have other ideas or suggestions? Email NHSA's Olivia Goumbri at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Posting photos, infographics, and inspirational quotes are a great way to spread awareness. We are also encouraging Head Start supporters throughout the country to post on your social media accounts using the hashtag #HeadStartAwareness and tag your community leaders or members of Congress!
For just one dollar for every child in Head Start, we can ensure that the voices of Head Start children and their families are heard by Members of Congress and the President.
