2012 Thank Your Mentor Day - Jan. 26

Thursday January 26, 2012 is national “Thank Your Mentor Day”

This is a wonderful opportunity for teams to give their mentors special thanks and to publicize the important work the mentors do.

Remember the technical and the non-technical mentors, such as the engineers, teachers, parents, college students and other adults who may help your team.

Tell your community how important your mentors are to your team!

Some ideas:
• Contact your local media [newspaper, TV station, and social media] for a story about your mentors and your team.
• Recognize your mentors at your school during morning announcements.
• Send an e-card through www.whomentoredyou.org or other sites.
• Organize an open house for the team’s community, with special recognition highlighting the mentors.
• Write a thank you note. Include a picture of the team.
