Submit Your Story
We want to hear from you!
Communities around Alberta are working together to address local traffic safety issues. Help inspire more communities to take action by sharing how you addressed a priority traffic safety challenge!
Once you submit your story online, a team member will review and follow up with you if we need more information. Your email and phone number will not be shared and will only be used if we need to follow up with you prior to posting your story.
Story authors are responsible for ensuring that all images submitted with a story have permission to be posted online. Do not submit photos, video, etc. unless you have permission (e.g. a signed photo or media release form) from individuals in the images and can produce that permission upon request.
If you have questions or you would like help, please contact us at email@example.com.
Consider the following tips and prompts before submitting. You do not need to answer all these questions or only these questions – they are simply to help you draft your story.
-Focus on a particular project/topic and keep the story short and concise.
-Use simple wording and explain jargon, technical language, or acronyms.
-Describe what prompted you to start your project (e.g. a challenge, event, situation, opportunity, etc.). Why was it important to you and your community?
-What did you do to address your challenge(s)? What main activities were a part of your project? When and where did these activities take place?
-Who did you collaborate with?
-What barriers did you have? How did you overcome them?
-What was the outcome of your project? For example, how many people attended/were impacted by it? What was the community response? Were there any unexpected results? Is any part continuing after the initial project is finished?
-What advice would you give others doing the same thing?
-If you are comfortable with others contacting you or your organization for more information, please include contact information in your story text.
-Include social media handles if you use social channels. If you use YouTube, include the video url and we can embed it in your story.
-When uploading photos and images, use the highest resolution possible. We recommend using images that are at least 1,000px wide.
