Learn how you can help MCA get ready for the 2015 Maine KIDS COUNT Data book.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Here at the Maine Children’s Alliance, we use research and data to tell the story of what it is like to be a Maine kid. However, numbers only tell half the story, which is why we need your help.
Send us photos of your Maine kids in action and help us paint a better picture of what it’s like to be a Maine kid in our online platforms and both digital and print publications.
Your photos will bring our data and information to life, help us better advocate for sound policies and practices for Maine children, youth and families, and showcase your Maine kids in action!
Pictures remind policymakers that Maine kids are more than just numbers and data, which is precisely why these policies are so important.
Right now we are collecting photos for our 2015 Maine KIDS COUNT Data Book, which will be released in the Fall and distributed to policymakers, service providers and advocates throughout the state. MCA releases a Maine KIDS COUNT Data Book biannually to help lawmakers make informed decisions on policies affecting Maine kids and families, and help service providers and advocacy organizations see how existing policies and practices are affecting Maine kids.
The deadline for photo submissions to the 2015 Maine KIDS CONT Data Book is July 15th.
This year we have made it easier than ever to send us your photos:
- Go online.
- Fill out the photo release form.
This is a pilot program so feel free to shoot us an email if you have any issues questions.
All photo submissions must be in jpeg, tiff or pdf image files (no gif files). For print publications, we can only use high quality photos so images must be at least 300 dpi.
