Poster #514 – Motivational Poster Convinces Wannabe Football Players to Finish School


Poster #514

Sometimes your students need a little straight talk about finishing school, and Poster #514 from the education experts at Youth Change Professional Development Training Workshops does just that. Featuring a football player stretched out to make a great catch, this poster grabs your students' attention and gets an important motivational "finish school" message through.

Your students may not realize that almost all pro football players have finished school, and that a diploma is considered essential preparation for entering most pro sports. Shouldn't your students know this? Poster #514 can spark that conversation right away.

The football player on the poster is making a great catch- his high school diploma! Some student athletes forget to put their academics first and consider not finishing school. They are hoping to make it through to the big leagues based on their athletic talent alone, and to slide by on finishing school and gaining needed skills and educ ation. Of course, statistically, very few students are going to end up playing in the NFL, but they're all going to need an education to succeed. Poster #514 asks the question, "Do you have what it takes to play pro football?" to really push kids to reflect on reality when it comes to those future hopes. They just may discover something about the importance of finishing school.

As a teacher or a coach, you can use this motivational "finish school" poster to convince wannabe football players and other sports-oriented students to focus on their academic careers, too, so they'll finish school and get good grades. Designed by counselors and teachers to connect with those hard-to-reach students, Poster #514 from Youth Change Professional Development Training Workshops will be a winner in your classroom, gym, school, counseling office, corridor or locker room.
