Ten-4 Proclamations

Process for getting local proclamations:

STEP 1: Contact Your Local Government Office – Governors, county executives, mayors, state legislatures, municipalities, counties, cities or towns can issue proclamations. In addition to seeking the specific guidelines for requesting a proclamation, be sure to inquire about the preferred format. This information will allow you to begin to draft an effective proclamation.
STEP 2: Draft Your Proclamation – Update this TEN-4 Awareness Day proclamation template: TEN-4 2022 Proclamation Request Template.docx
STEP 3: Follow the Guidelines for Submitting a Proclamation Request – Each city and county will have their own procedures for signing proclamations. Personalize this sample proclamation request letter to share more information about TEN-4 Awareness Day with your local leaders: TEN-4 2022 Proclamation Request Letter.docx
STEP 4: Allow Enough Time – The wheels of government turn slowly, so be sure to begin the proclamation request process early.
STEP 5: Make an Event Out of It! – Coordinate with your local leaders to recognize TEN-4 Awareness Day and promote the proclamation on October 4, 2022. Follow the guidelines that you are given as to whom (and how many) you can bring to the proclamation meeting or signing event. Notify your local media outlets about the proclamation. Have the proclamation photo-enlarged for display at a news conference and/or in a prominent public place. Stream the event live on Facebook and/or share photos on the proclamation and signing on social media — be sure to tag the Face It Movement and use the #TEN4Rule hashtag.
