The Thirteenth Annual National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy took place on May 7, 2014. On the National Day and throughout the month of May, teens nationwide will be asked to visit www.StayTeen.org to participate in a popular National Day Quiz. The website and quiz delivers teen pregnancy prevention messages and challenges students to think carefully about what they might do “in the moment.”

The message of the National Day is simple and straightforward: Sex has consequences.

Organized by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, the National Day has widespread support from nearly 200 national organizations and media outlets that serve as official National Day partners.

The OLCHS Nurse’s office participated in the promotion by creating a hallway bulletin board display. The display was acknowledged in a state-wide email from the Illinois Department of Public Health.
