We set up an exhibit at the entrance to a very popular weekly, year-round farmer's market, talk to the patrons as they enter or leave, and give the BAW materials to everyone. We also emphasize the CHAD (Children Have An Identity) ID stickers for child bike helmets and car seats. The pencils/brain erasers are always very popular, as are the workbooks. We had only a few materials left this year. Our display is up for 7 hours.

Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
It definitely enhances the message Pilot Club tries to get out to the public - "Take Care of Your Brain For Life". Our signature events throughout the year are puppet shows for preschoolers and children in the first and second grade which teach such things as always wear your bike helmet, look before you go into the street, wear a life jacket when in a boat, and play on a safe surface.
