DESIGN AN AD PROGRAM
What is Kid Wise?
Each quarter IID's Environmental Mitigation Section teams up with Imperial Valley Alive! Magazine to get into a 3rd-grade classroom to implement the Kid Wise –Design an Ad Program. An environmental specialist from IID and an advertisement specialist from Alive! Magazine will come into the classroom and speak about a local environmental topic or issue, advertisements and how to design an ad. Each student then designs their own ad to submit and 4 winners are selected and featured in the next issue of Imperial Valley Alive! Magazine.
IID is now offering a virtual Kid Wise- Design an Ad Program. Please contact Jessica Humes at JLLHUMES@iid.com or 760-427-6190 for more information.
