Information will be disseminated across campus about the 2012 Red Flag Campaign. The campaign is designed to create awareness on college campuses throughout the country about red flags that lead to dating violence and what students can do to avoid those situations.
A YouTube video contest is available for students to inform themselves and think about sexual assault and dating violence prevention. Interested students should upload their video to YouTube and contact Dr. Julie Mikles-Schluterman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The video contest winner will receive $100 and their video will air on Tech TV. Prizes for second and third place are $50 each.
Videos should create awareness of sexual assault or dating violence prevention in less than four minutes.

Faculty members interested in having students speak to their classes about the Red Flag Campaign should email Mikles-Schluterman.
Mikles-Schulterman said the campaign is about getting students to encourage friends and the campus community to speak out when they witness warning signs, or red flags, for dating violence in a friend’s relationship.
