- Many speakers have restrictions on what can and cannot be photographed, videoed, and/or posted online, so make sure this is clearly outlined in the contract. Also make sure you know which students can and cannot be photographed.
- Invite everyone: local press, building administrators, district administrators, supervisors, your counterparts at the public library, colleagues in your department at other schools, members of sponsoring organization, teachers, etc. Even if they are unable to come, it’s great publicity for your program and the amazing opportunities you are providing your students. If members of the press cannot attend, provide outlets with a photo and a press release afterwards. Be sure to thank your sponsors.
