Every few days two to three random student What is Kindness Anyway? soundbytes will be placed on the YES FaceBook page and shared with our regional school districts for use in schools. Keep checking to see if your recording has posted!
Please note: All submissions are subject to review. Only give your first name and school name in your recording. You can name up to three things or people you are thankful for. Submissions must also come from your adviser, so please see the following list of who to see in your school.
Find your school’s Youth Empowerment Adviser to give them your soundbyte. You can either email it to your adviser or bring it to them on a portable flash drive so they can handle sending it to our review team.
You can record a voice memo on your phone with iPhone app: Voice Memos or Android app: Voice Recorder. If you can’t record with your phone, you can follow the following path to a recording application on your computer:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > Sound Recorder
Save your recording with your name and school, like so: tim_Ticonderoga.mp4
Best formats are mp3s and mp4s for your soundbytes.
See your YES adviser (listed above) to have them send us your soundbyte. It must come directly from an adviser for it to be considered.
Just What is Kindness Anyway?
The script is: “Hi! My name is ____ (first name only) ________, I go to ____________________ school. I think kindness is _____________________________________. One type of kindness we need more of in schools ___________________.
After you collect the soundbytes from students, please email them in Google Drive or Dropbox to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your audio files will be collected and we will send a confirmation that they have been received.
NOTE: We do not advise attaching the soundbytes to an email directly to the size of the files and inbox limitations.
Once reviewed, we will contact you with a list of your students whose soundbyte was chosen for that week and you can use that information to tell the student(s) and include it in daily announcements for all to hear!
Some recordings may be reserved for another week if we receive many from the same school, just to spread out all the messages from across the region.
