Turn Your #ScreensOffDelta

Jan 12, 2015

As part of Family Literacy Day in Canada, Delta Community Literacy Committee is initiating Screens Off Delta, a challenge to Delta residents to unplug for one hour or more on Tuesday, January 27. 

The initiative brings awareness to the amount of time we spend on our devices, and encourages Delta residents to connect with loved ones, take part in a community activity, play sports, go for a walk outdoors, read a book, or anything else that doesn't involve screen time. Turn your cellphones, tablets, computers, and televisions off and unplug.

Leading up to the day, Screens Off Delta invites you to engage online with the hashtag #ScreensOffDelta for a chance to win prizes. Share what you will do when you unplug and check out weekly activities and challenges. Each time you post, like or share from now until January 27, you will be entered to win one of many prizes, including an iPad!
