  Abstract: The Why Physics? campaign is a joint effort between AAPT, the American Physical Society and the Society of Physics Students to help high school physics teachers recruit students, and to inform students, parents, and guidance counselors about the many benefits of taking a physics course. The campaign includes the "Why Physics?" poster and the "7 Myths About High School Physics" brochure. In addition, we are designing a large part of our campaign around enlisting and empowering physics teachers to be strong advocates for physics in their schools. In this talk I will briefly describe our campaign, and share some of the strategies for success that we have learned from teachers around the country.
