Challenge: Teachers need an incentive prize for students
D.A.R. E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is an awareness program designed to educate children and teens about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. A group of school teachers needed an incentive gift to hand out to students as prizes during the last week of school and throughout the school’s D.A.R.E. campaign. They wanted a gift that would be cost-effective, tie into the D.A.R.E. theme and peak the interest of students.
Solution: Teachers choose Ribbon Pens to promote anti-drug message and reward students.
Teachers knew that students were tired of the same old prizes and ribbons as part of D.A.R.E. and wanted something new to excite their students. They decided to order Promotional Ribbon Pens in bright red, complete with the D.A.R.E. logo. The pens were awarded to students who had performed particularly well in certain areas as well as to students who won various games at the end-of-year gathering.
Result: Ribbon Pens become popular amongst students and encourage student’s enthusiasm for activities.
The pens became the most sought after and popular prize at the end-of-year gathering. Students loved the color and novelty of the pen and appreciated being rewarded for their hard work. The teachers saw an increase in student enthusiasm when pens were used as incentives. Their only regret is that they didn’t order more! Next year, the teachers plan to order the pens earlier in the year so that eventually, every student can earn one. These pens make great tools for education and awareness.
