Boobis Logo Extra Credit

Show off your artistic talents and your wisdom!

For extra credit create an SSA (Student Service Announcement) poster for our class or school. Your poster should be eye-catching and easy to read. Make sure your letters are large enough and clearly drawn so people can read your poster when it's up on the wall. You may use any drawing style or materials: crayons, markers, paint, a computer, cut out collage photographs, whatever you like.(See me if you need supplies.) Have fun and be creative.

Here's what to do:
  1. Choose a poster to make from the list below.
  2. Be sure to copy the words and punctuation correctly. [Design ideas are given in brackets in green.]
  3. You might want to start with pencil and do a rough draft first.
  4. If you'd like to suggest your own SSA poster, be sure to check with me first. Or use the Excellent Quotes for Everyone page to submit your idea.
  5. Put your name and class somewhere on the front of the poster so people know you're the artist!
  6. Give your poster to me when you're done and let's find a place to post it!
