Better You BINGO: A Healthy Coping Challenge for Youth by Youth

Better You BINGO is a tool that invites other youth ages 12-19 from the community to participate in a self-paced "healthy coping challenge" that introduces them to or leads them to complete activities that will focus on healthy coping skills for a chance to win a healthy coping themed PRIZE. Some examples of the challenges that youth will be presented with include reduced screen time, recognizing nature, and taking time to exercise.


A CHANCE TO WIN? We will be drawing up to 40 Clark County Youth winners who can select from a list of prizes that all promote healthy coping skills, such as disc golf Frisbee sets, basketballs, soccer balls, gratitude journals, or a $10 gift card to Michaels orJo-Ann Fabrics, among many other options!


Although the Better You BINGO challenge is mostly on Instagram, STASHA is also accepting entries by email, using the printable versions of the BINGO card that we attached to this email along with instructions on how to participate. They can print these out or mark them some other way and send their BINGO card with either a picture, video, or anecdote of the coping skill(s) they completed to clarkcountystasha@gmail.com. We understand how important privacy is for the youth you work with and that is why STASHA is accepting entries by email, pictures without their faces shown, and even short anecdotes instead of pictures. More details about how to participate on the flyer (attached)!


We know how busy you are so we included a sample email below that you can edit and pass along to your youth if you would like. Please feel free to adapt the sample email to fit your needs and voice.


Challenge starts on 4/20, and participants can begin anytime between 4/20 and 5/20 at their own pace. STASHA was intentional about launching on 4/20. They selected this start date as a way to take back 4/20 and make it a day about celebrating making healthy decisions. For more information about STASHA and Better You BINGO, visit www.clarkcountystasha.org. Thank you for all you do for youth in our community.
