NCFY Recommends: Take the National Campaign's Teen Pregnancy Prevention Quiz


Here's something you may or may not know: Though the U.S. teen birth rate is at a record low, 3 in 10 American girls get pregnant by age 20.

You can test young people's knowledge of these and other facts by encouraging them to take the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy's annual online quiz. Posted each May on Stay Teen, the National Campaign's website for youth, and available in English and Spanish, the quiz encourages teens to think carefully about sex, relationships, contraception, the possibility of pregnancy and the lifelong challenges of being a parent. This year, the quiz will be available May 4-31.

The quiz can make a difference for teens: Of last year's participants who responded to a survey, about three-quarters said the quiz made them think about what they might do in situations involving unplanned pregnancy. Two-thirds said some of the situations in the quiz were things they or their friends had faced, and close to two-thirds said the quiz made the risks of sex and teen pregnancy seem more real to them.
