Social Norms Marketing
TOGETHER! has been working on a social norms marketing campaign with a middle school in Thurston County. During the month of December, an outside evaluator analyzed the Social Norms Survey data for the school. Once the data was received, social norms posters were created, printed, and disseminated to the school to be put on display, with the goal of helping kids better understand the substance use norms of their peers.  (See example above - note, the white boxes are where the name of the middle school and their mascot would be.)
