During this academic year, your child may have the opportunity to have his/her photograph(s) and/or work related to the Spanish Fork Youth Council published in and/or displayed on the Spanish Fork City and/or Spanish Fork Youth Council social media and internet web sites, as well as SFCN 17, the local television channel operated by Spanish Fork City. Publishing or displaying your child’s photograph(s) and youth council work furthers the youth council’s educational mission and permits you, the parent or guardian, along with other friends or relatives of the child, to view your child’s accomplishments. We recognize, however, that not all parents or guardians may wish to have a photograph of their child or personally identifiable information related to their child published in newsletters or newspapers, shown on television, or posted on social media. We therefore request that those parents or guardians who would like to take advantage of this opportunity please review and sign this Consent and Release Agreement and return it to the Youth Council advisor. Youth whose parents or guardians do not sign this Agreement will not in any way be penalized.
By signing this form, I give Spanish Fork City permission to publish/display, or permit others to publish/display, a photograph(s) of my child or my child’s work related to the Youth Council in the City newsletter, on SFCN 17, in the local newspapers, and/or on City social media sites. I understand that the publication/display of such photograph(s) and work may include personally identifiable information about my child, such as my child’s name, grade level or age, Youth Council position, and name of school he or she attends. I also understand that the City, Youth Council advisor, SFCN, or the local newspaper agencies will exercise editorial control over what photograph(s) or work is published/displayed. In consideration of the benefits of having a photograph(s) or work of my child published in newsletters or newspapers, shown on SFCN 17, or displayed on social media sites, I consent to the publication/display of this type of information along with my child’s photograph(s) and work related to the Youth Council, and to the City’s, SFCN 17’s, and newspaper agencies’ exercise of editorial control. I understand that information published or displayed as herein described may be accessed and distributed by parties over whom Spanish Fork City has no control, and I assume the risk that such parties may use these materials for improper purposes. I agree, on my and my child’s behalf, to release Spanish Fork City, its elected officials, officers, and employees, from and against any and all claims, damages, or liability arising from or related to the aforementioned publications/displays of my child’s photograph, Youth Council work, and other personally identifiable information obtainable from such publication/displays.
I have read this Consent and Release Agreement before signing it and I fully understand it. I have been given the opportunity to ask any questions I might have about it, understand that my child will not be penalized in their participation in the Youth Council if I do not sign it, and sign it in consideration of the benefits of having a photograph(s) or Youth Council work of my child published or displayed online.
