AAHPERD was a great success!

May 2nd, 2013

It has been a few days since AAHPERD 2013 wrapped up in Charlotte, NC, and we are still feeling the good vibes from attending the conference!

Both current and aspiring PE teachers from all over the U.S. and outside the country stopped by our booth to hear what Ask, Listen, Learn is all about. Many were really excited to try out our interactive game!

Geared toward 5th through 7th graders, the game combines physical activity with information about how to say “YES” to a healthy lifestyle and “NO” to underage drinking.

PE teachers found the game engaging, saw its educational value and potential, and were eager to learn more about our efforts to prevent underage drinking and to promote a healthy, active lifestyle among children and youth.

Furthermore, the Ask Listen Learn: Kids and Alcohol Don’t Mix program features several superstars, such as Two-Time Gold Medalist Aly Raisman, who serve as inspiring role models for kids and encourage them to say Yes to a healthy lifestyle and no to underage drinking!

We were encouraged by all the enthusiasm and look forward to developing new partnerships with these educators!

Resources for teachers, parents, and the students themselves are available on the Ask, Listen, Learnwebsite.  Event news and updates are available on Twitter. Stay tuned to the Ask, Listen, Learn blog for news on the NASPE contest winners on May 7!

Contest for North Carolina middle schoolers!

February 21st, 2012


The NC Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission (NCABC) and its educational and prevention website, www.ACTnowNC.org, are excited to sponsor the first annual Middle School Poster Contest.

The goal of the contest is to get students thinking, talking (and drawing!) about the dangers of underage drinking. Students from across North Carolina are encouraged to enter artwork that creatively expresses their interpretation of the contest’s theme: “Most don’t, and I won’t!”

We commend our friends at the NCABC for this effort! It’s a great opportunity for youth to get involved!

Ask Listen Learn Visits Arden, NC!

May 10th, 2010

The Century Council returned to North Carolina for another round of the Ask, Listen, Learn program today! Rep. Heath Shuler (NC-11) joined us at Valley Springs Middle School in Arden, NC to show students how to “say ‘YES’ to a healthy lifestyle and ‘NO’ to underage drinking.”

As always, we loved seeing the interest kids showed in the game. We were impressed by the awareness the kids showed in staying active, and we’re sure they would make phenomenal additions to the Ask, Listen, Learn Team!

We would like to thank Rep. Shuler for his help with the event! The Century Council has previously recognized his commitment to fighting underage drinking, and today proved to be no exception. In fact, his office has agreed to help distribute our Ask Listen Learn interactive activity to schools throughout his district!

Thanks to Valley Springs Middle School for a great event!

Braving thunderstorms and tornadoes, The Century Council brought its Ask, Listen, Learn program to Liberty, NC on Monday for an event with Rep. Howard Coble (NC-06.)

We had a great event. The kids were excited to try the Ask, Listen, Learn interactive activity – learning about the dangers of underage drinking  – while also breaking out in a sweat. Kids also learned about the Ask, Listen, Learn site, where they can register profiles and read about SuperStars such as Apolo Anton Ohno!

Thanks Principal Miller, and of course Rep. Coble for taking part in this event! And thanks to the kids of Northeastern Randolph Middle School for saying ‘YES’ to a healthy lifestyle and ‘NO’ to underage drinking!
