Cover Letter Draft_
Assemble the almost final draft of your Cover Letter. You are writing the cover letter to the organization that you would like to distribute your infographic. While this will just be a draft and can change, the draft will need to include the following:
- Formatted as a letter
Greeting, date of the letter, main body, sign off (e.g. yours sincerely) and your name with contact information. This also needs to be 1.15 spacing, and 11 pt font, with double spacing between paragraphs. 1page limit.
- First paragraph introduces the topic
- Within that paragraph describe why the topic is important and the target population.
Provide evidence supporting the importance of your topic (e.g. include statistics on poor nutrition in your target population). Cite this evidence in a footnote.
- Second paragraph describes why the organization should distribute/post the infographic.
In this section highlight the connection between the organization(s) you have chosen the target population. Be very persuasive in why they should post your infographic.
Organization: Washington State Department of Health.
- The last section describes the why and how of the infographic.
Describe the evidence used to support the content in the infographic and why the infographic will be effective in addressing the topic/issue for the target population. Also describe how the organization should disseminate the infographic (e.g. distribute it in a newsletter, or post it in clinic waiting rooms, ect…).
This section can be its own paragraph but does not have to be.
