Peer Education Recognition Opportunities
Each of the three Nebraska State Peer Education teams offer a wide variety of recognition opportunities. Through Family Leader, Community Leader, and Career Leader programming, chapters can be recognized for their outstanding efforts. Check out these chapter recognition opportunities related to each Team.

Capture the Action
In addition to these recognition opportunities, chapters can apply with outstanding projects related to each of the three National Programs represented. STOP the Violence, Career Connection, and FACTS National Programs provide valuable peer education opportunities for students. These projects can take place at any point during the year. The top three projects in each National Program will be recognized at the Peer Education conference.
To complete a Capture the Action application, simply submit a picture and short description using the form provided. This is a great way to share the unique ideas that your chapter is incorporating as well as receiving recognition for those outstanding projects at the Peer Education Conference.
