From May 4th – 10th this year join children, families and communities across the country as they “unplug” for Screen-Free Week. Screen-Free Week is an annual event that challenges folks to turn off their TVs, tablets, computers, phones, and other “screens” (with the exception of use for work and homework obligations) in order to spend their free time doing screen-free activities with friends and family! It is organized by the folks at Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood.
Think you’re up for the challenge? Then fill out a Pledge Card for you and your family members and join us for Screen-Free Week! If you bring your pledge card to an FHT event during the week, or submit it to us beforehand, you and your children can earn certificates upon a successful completion of Screen-Free Week!
