Game Designer's Challenge
For its 9th annual National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy in 2010, the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy designed the Stay Teen Block Party as one way to engage teens in examining some of the facts about teen pregnancy.
Critique of MTV's Teen Mom Series
In the show 16 and Pregnant, which aired in a previous season, the girls featured in the MTV series Teen Mom were moms-to-be. Now, viewers are able to follow Farrah, Maci, Amber, and Catelynn as they face the challenges of their first year of motherhood. As the Teen Mom website informs us: “Each episode interweaves these stories revealing the wide variety of challenges young mothers can face: marriage, relationships, family support, adoption, finances, graduating high school, starting college, getting a job, and the daunting and exciting step of moving out to create their own families.”
Teen Pregnancy and Media Influence
In 2010 Candies Foundation (an organization that partners with celebrities and dedicates itself to preventing teen pregnancy) joined forces with Seventeen magazine to conduct a survey of girls 14 to 18 to examine how the media influences them on subjects of sex, pregnancy and parenting.
