Beginning Sunday, May 1st - and throughout the month of May - teens nationwide are asked to go to StayTeen.org to participate in several online activities, including the popular National Day Quiz. This short, scenario-based quiz asks teens to think about what they would do in a number of risky sexual situations and sends the straightforward message that sex has consequences. This year’s online National Day Quiz includes fun stop-motion animations to help illustrate the quiz’s scenarios in a fun and engaging way for teens.
In addition to the National Day Quiz, teens will also be able to play our new Invasion of the Myth Monsters game. This fun game challenges teens to learn more about the truth behind several popular sex myths and fend off hordes of zombie-like "myth monsters" who are spreading bad information to their friends. Teens that are able to complete the game by dispelling all nine myths will be entered into a drawing for a 32GB iPod Touch.
Last year, more than a half-million teens participated in the National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy.
