|Voices of Meningitis Challenge
The Voices of Meningitis Challenge is a program designed to encourage school nurses to educate local schools and communities about meningococcal disease vaccination and recognize them for their efforts. As part of the Challenge, NASN is asking you to proactively conduct meningococcal meningitis awareness activities to reach families with this important information. Free online resources, guidance, and support are available to assist you in your efforts.
Voices Challenge Submission Form
As activities are conducted, NASN urges you to fill out the "Voices Challenge Submission Form" highlighting your awareness efforts (multiple forms can be submitted) so your activities can be recognized and shared with your peers. You can send submission forms back to NASN via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or mail them to NASN's headquarters at:
Remember, no effort is too small to highlight and the submission form only takes a few minutes to complete.

Voices State Challenge
In addition to NASN recognizing school nurses individually who participate in the Voices Challenge, we're also creating some healthy competition among our state affiliates. The three states with the highest percentage of participation in the Challenge (as measured by submission forms received), will win a sponsored activity during a 2012 state annual conference (up to $500).
