This writing competition aims to answer a call for help, identifying important stories that can help us use education to avoid prisons. Helping tell and share powerful stories that shed light and find solutions to move children onto the path to education, inquiry, and abundance rather than one of pain are critical. Competition winners will be featured in a book aimed at the same cause.
If this is successful we’re going to run plenty of competitions, and I so hope it will be.
Our inaugural competition is called the “Supercow Call for Help Competition”
#Supercow #callforhelp #competition – lol love the hashtags right? Just learning how to use them 🙂
The idea behind the submissions are that they address an important call for help, addressing an important topic that children and teenagers face, helping provide stories that shed light on difficult problems, and offer solutions.
