High schools around Utah have planned an entire week of activities on dating abuse prevention. Students have created public service announcements (PSAs) that play during their morning television announcements, while others students have chosen to plan lunch activities where dating violence statistics and warning signs are addressed. Other schools have arranged to have guest speakers come present during school assemblies.
