Extension Communications collaborates with OSU Extension faculty to develop effective, engaging educational resources in a variety of media.

This project request form is the best way to start working with us on most communication projects.

If you have an idea for a project, please consult with your Extension program leader to make sure your idea is in line with program priorities and goals. Then submit this request form. You’ll receive an email confirmation for your records.

What happens next?
Once we receive your request, we will discuss it at our monthly project meeting and choose an Extension Communications project manager. Your project manager will contact you to go over the scope of the project and talk about the right format for your project (e.g., print publication, video, podcast, app). Then your project manager will work with you to set a timeline for completing the project.

Please submit the request as you're planning your project, before you start drafting text, creating content, or writing your grant. That way, you and your Extension Communications project manager can discuss ideas and address any questions.

About you (step 1 of 5)
The project contact is the liaison to Extension Communications.
Someone on your project team needs to have an OSU Extension or Agriculture Experiment Station appointment.
Please list names and affiliations of your team members (coauthors).
You and the project contact will receive confirmation of this project request submission.
The program leader for this area will receive a summary of your project request. Project summaries for Administration are sent to the Extension Communications director.
About your project (step 2 of 5)
Briefly describe this project and why it's important. Limit: 150 words.
Consider size, demographics, learning needs, interest and motivation, technology use and access, etc.
What you'd like to do (step 3 of 5)
Check all that apply.
Consider your own needs (for workshops, etc.) and demand from clients and other stakeholders.
Small (for example, a few-page factsheet, a single illustration). Medium (for example, a 20-page publication, a short video, a motion graphic, a learning module). Large (for example, a field guide or handbook, a website, an app, a series of products).
Pacific Northwest (PNW) Extension publications are produced cooperatively by the three PNW land-grant universities (Oregon State University, Washington State University, University of Idaho). This prevents duplication of effort, broadens the availability of faculty specialists, and can reduce costs.
Your timeframe (step 4 of 5)
