Let your words shine!

Words are a powerful way to share our thoughts with other people.

They can make people feel things. They can make people understand and think about things that maybe they haven’t thought about before.

Your words are also powerful. What you think matters. Being smaller doesn’t mean you don’t have big thoughts about important things.

We want you to think about some of those things and then use your words to tell us about them.

“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” – Malala Yousafzai
