Scope and Content Note

This series contains records created by the Public Education Bureau staff related to the development and implementation of annual "Safe Summer" campaigns.

The series contains planning documents, distribution lists, evaluations by review board members, fiscal documents, contracts and related records, media plans, studies on the effectiveness of the campaign, correspondence from the public, scripts for radio announcements, copies of print publications, and camera-ready mechanicals. There are two audio cassette tapes and one reel to reel tape of public service radio announcements. The series also contains at least one 8 x 10" black and white photo and approximately 20 black and white and 36 color 3 x 3" to 4 x 6" photographs showing local agency implementations of the campaign. These photographs are sometimes reproduced in later publicity material.
