Charge Up Your Chapter Campaign
The Charge Up Your Chapter Campaign awards prizes to local chapters that have members who are actively engaged in national NSSLHA and ASHA activities. There are over five awards our local chapter can receive!
Each year, our chapter enters a video contest. Videos will be judged on creativity, message, and relevance to the topic. Videos may be humorous or serious, but—more important—they must convey energy and the ASHA theme. This past years theme was “Changing Minds. Changing Lives. Leading the Way”.Thanks to everybody that participated in filming our video!
