Please visit www.bsa-gnyc.org/PR and share this link with fellow volunteers to help the Council engage in a grassroots PR effort to gain free publicity in community newspapers throughout the city. The information provided includes information on what is newsworthy, press release writing tips, press release samples, and a community newspaper contact list. Staff and volunteers are encouraged to submit positive Scouting stories taking place in their service areas to the relevant papers. Stories on new Eagle Scouts, service projects, Pinewood Derbies, community fundraising events and the details on when/where new units meet are just some of the items that may be of interest to local papers.
Together, we can raise awareness of all the great things that Scouting is doing for our community.
