Step 1 - Be the Change and Be Inspired: Selecting a Research Topic

You have a voice. You can make a difference. Read the Advocating for Change Handout to understand why using your voice is important and how eCards can help you use it. How are you going to use your voice? What topic are you passionate about?  Search through our eCard Research Topics page for inspiration. Already inspired by another resource? Great! Move onto step 2

Step 2 - Plan Your Messaging and Artwork

Now that you've done your research and are passionate about a topic it's time to create your eCard. What type of art will depict your message? What decision maker do you want to email? Use the eCard worksheet (PDF or Google Doc) to guide you through these questions. Examples of past eCards and tips and tools are in the Artwork Creation section below to help you with your graphics.

Just make sure to create your own original graphics and make sure your research message is in your own words.
