Write a 1- 2 minute public service announcement for radio and television alerting the community to the problems of child abuse and neglect.

Create a account in which to record and upload your announcement. Once you go to the login page, you can create an account for free. Create the account and then follow the directions. It is fairly easy.

If you know another way to do a recording and upload it you may do that also. There is a free recording app at the app store. You can download this to your phone. Then you record and send it to your computer.

Paste the link of your recording in a thread to share with your classmates.

Here is a sample recording:
