In addition to empowering students to think about and make a difference on a critical societal issue, the purpose of the initiative is also to showcase the brilliance, creativity and hope that we know exists within our schools. Because we want a diverse collection of work, and to embrace students’ individual strengths and affinities, we are encouraging multiple means of expression; i.e. short story, essay, poetry, graphic design, cartoon, photography, drawing, video, etc. Students of all ages should submit whatever work they feel best represents their thinking on the issue.
Today, more than ever, we need to encourage, then listen to the Voices of our students, and to compellingly make the case to our community that our students are learning and applying new 21st century competencies to solve real-world problems with critical thinking, creativity and innovation.
We greatly look forward to sharing student work that simultaneously conveys messages and ideas that are informational, inspirational, and transformational.
