Crowdsourced contest promoting home visiting begins today!

Voices for Utah Children has launched an exciting online crowdsourced contest to find out what types of support new and expecting parents in Utah want the most. The challenge, run in partnership with the national online advocacy platform SparkAction, is an opportunity to learn more about the needs of Utah parents in their own words and to help urge the Utah Legislature and U.S. Congress to continue funding evidence-based home visiting programs such as Nurse Family Partnership to serve high risk, low-income first time mothers in Utah.

The contest simply asks parents to share a photo and their  answer to the question, "If a baby expert visited you, what help would you want?" Anyone who visits the website can vote for their favorites. The entry with the most votes  will win a night of free babysitting and dinner and a movie. The contest and all the information is at utahchildren.org/4UTparents.


We hope you can help us spread the word to your networks of new and expecting parents or professionals and advocates who serve new and expecting parents.
To save you work, we have created sample social media posts, e-newsletter blurbs, images and links that can simply be copied and pasted onto your platforms and websites, available here: http://www.utahchildren.org/about-us/projects/item/567


Will you please spread the word to your networks?
The contest begins today and ends on March 12, 2015. Please help Utah parents be heard and help us raise awareness of evidence-based home visiting.
