We hope you have noticed the series of posters and flyers that Watt Watchers has been developing – there are eight so far. We are

flyers and posters


producing the series as both 8.5 x 11 color flyers and as color pull-out posters inside each issue of WATTS NEWS. Some have not yet been
published as posters — but stay tuned. We have a few more great graphic designs for posters in development, too.
The flyers are our way of explaining the diverse programs available to you through Watt Watchers of Texas. On the reverse of each
flyer is an explanation of the program and information on how you can participate. The entire series is intended to provide a summary of all
the program components of Watt Watchers while supporting students, teachers, and administrators engaged in saving energy in Texas
schools.
Laminate the pull-out posters and hang them up in your school to promote the programs you are participating in. We print some extra
newsletters each issue, let us know if you need a few. We can send extra flyers to Energy Mangers to help them promote the various
program elements in their districts.
