Voices for Georgia’s Children, the American Academy of Pediatrics – Georgia Chapter, and PARTNERS for Equity in Child & Adolescent Health is launching “Mask Up for Kids,” an ad campaign designed at keeping children and the adults that care for them healthy. The campaign will run on broadcast television, digital, and social media statewide. You can view the videos here:
The ads feature children too young to be vaccinated – a demographic that has been particularly hard-hit in recent weeks. They talk about the adults in their lives that are getting sick and not able to take care of them.
Headlines of sick bus drivers, teachers, and other school staff have blanketed the state since the beginning of the school year in August:

Georgia’s Pre-K Program is a voluntary, free program available to all of Georgia’s four-year-olds regardless of parental income. Approximately 1.6 million Georgia students have been served by Georgia’s Pre-K since it began in 1992. The program continues to be nationally recognized for its success.
This is the 11th year of Georgia Pre-K Week! 11 years ago, funding for the state's universal Pre-K program was in jeopardy. Now, each year, the first week of October is dedicated to raising awareness of the importance and benefits of a quality Pre-K across our state by providing leaders the opportunity to engage with classrooms in their local communities.
