Local Theater Publicity - Time Sensitive

In promoting mentoring and providing resources, the Boren Mentoring Initiative is in the process of planning a 2013 Oklahoma youth mentoring campaign as well as recognizing one mentor (and his or her mentee) on Oklahoma Mentor Day, January 16, 2013, at the State Capitol.  We will announce more details in the future; however, we have a local public relatons issue requiring immediate action on your part.

In order to have a public service announcement (PSA) at your local theater, you must far in advance contact the theater to learn the process and specifications to submit a mentoring PSA; permission is not granted locally but corporately from the chain or distributor.  The Boren Mentoring Initiative will be unable to contact your local theaters.

Currently, we have permission for one PSA during a limited time slot at the Harkins Bricktown Theater in Oklahoma City. 

From the National Mentoring Partnership, we will receive materials which each organization can use for a PSA, but we are also working with the University of Oklahoma to create materials for an Oklahoma campaign.  Whichever route you may choose, please contact your local theaters now to process your request.  The PSAs will be generic, either using the National Mentoring Month theme of "Mentoring Works" or the theme and imagery of the Oklahoma campaign. 

Although running the mentoring PSA in January, National Mentoring Month, would be ideal, any time you can book during 2013 will be perfect.
