We sponsored a “Grow Your Brain” night at a local battery-free toy store where we shared the best toys for brain development. We partnered with our local public libraries to hold events in each library’s children’s area during the week. We provided contests and trivia announcements for each of our elementary, middle, and high schools, reaching all students and teachers. We created a Brain Awareness Week window display in a downtown business. We shared brain trivia on local radio stations during the morning commute.
