A project of the Afterschool Alliance

Celebrations Across State Unite on Twitter

At an Iowa Lights On Afterschool event, messages and live tweets from celebrations in communities all across the state were displayed for attendees. Sites from across the state participated by using the hashtag #LightsOnAfterschoolIowa. The tweets also allowed those who could not attend our event to see what was happening at afterschool programs in their state. We were also able to call out leaders in our community and thank them for attending events, helping increase the visibility of leaders who support afterschool.
