According to a preliminary study on social media and sports, researchers found that some kids quit sports because they don’t have the “right” body for the activity. Platforms like TikTok and Instagram, with their filtered and edited images, are making kids feel down about their bodies. Researchers say it's a wake-up call to us all to be aware of the impact of social media on young minds. Learn more about the issue.

Your Task:
Design a social campaign to address this issue (social media and its impact on sports participation) and get kids back on (the) track. Alternatively, if there’s another issue (related to the impact of social media) that you feel strongly about, go for it. Explain the steps you would take to create the campaign. For example: Would you conduct a survey? If so, what questions would you ask? Could you ask influencers to help with your campaign? If so, who would you ask? Would you create TikTok videos? If so, what would they include? You really want this campaign to go viral.
