A new grant from the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) will help us educate secondary academy students on the “Zero Alcohol for Nine Months” campaign, better known as the 049 prevention campaign.
Four 287 programs,Gateway to College Academy, North Education Center Academy (NECA), South Education Center Academy(SECA) and W-ALT, are proud to announce the award of $2,500 to help students learn about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and 049 facts through a traveling interactive prevention fair involving hands-on activities and games.
The events will reach about 350 Academy students and will feature passport prizes, chapsticks, bookmarks, 049 pins and mocktail recipes. Staff from school nurses, to art teachers, to program facilitators, are getting involved by offering observations of the “egg and ethanol” experiment, a juried art contest illustrating 049 facts, and lessons about the stages of fetal development.
