The Ollie Otter Program shares the message of booster seat and seat belt safety with elementary school students across the state. Traditionally, Ollie has traveled to these schools with his friends to provide in-person presentations to classrooms and gymnasiums filled with students. Now, Ollie has a virtual option – Ollie LIVE! This option has allowed Ollie even more access to students, and provided even more opportunities for volunteers to get involved in the program. These virtual presentations are conducted through live streams with Ollie and his friends, and all that is required is a computer with stable internet connection in your classroom.
Ollie and his friends are ready to share safety information through a virtual, Ollie LIVE! presentation, or by visiting your school!
See press releases from previous presentations and request media for your Ollie event.
Schedule a virtual or in-person visit from Ollie and his friends to teach your class about booster seat, seat belt, and roadway safety.
Ensure your classroom has a stable internet connection and monitor for your class to view and interact with our virtual presentation. Ensure the website https://streamyard.com/ is not blocked by your school. Please Contact Us with any questions concerning these steps.
Once your school or classroom has been added to the schedule, you will receive a link to be used the day and time of your presentation. Click the link and we will do the rest!
For more information, please reference this Ollie LIVE! Checklist/Flyer…
Ollie Otter presentations always include Ollie and at least one of his friends. This friend will either be an Ollie Coordinator, Tennessee Tech Student, or an Ollie Volunteer. When possible, Ollie’s friends from the Tennessee Road Builders Association, Tennessee Highway Patrol, or the Tennessee Highway Safety Office may join the presentation as well.
Students will learn four lessons about child passenger and traffic safety:
In both Ollie LIVE! and in person Ollie presentations, students are asked to join in call-and-response activities while incorporating movement for remembering these lessons, and the presentation ends with an Ollie cheer.
Presentations last approximately 15-30 minutes depending on the medium and group size.
Ollie is always looking for Volunteers ready to help out with presentations. Visit our Volunteer page to learn more about how to get involved!
