Be REAL Writing Contest
The Results Are In!!!
As many of you know, teaching kids is one of my passions in life. And with the LIFE Edge cd series, I now get the opportunity to connect my passion for kids with my purpose in life! I think that's pretty cool.
Kristine and I love the Edge cd series and what we see it doing in our own children's lives, so we wanted to expand that to include all the kids in our Revolution family. That's when we launched Be REAL. That stands for Revolution EDGE Academy of Leadership. Which is just a really cool way of reminding ourselves, and the young people in our lives to Be REAL: The REAL you inside. We accomplish this through listening to our awesome series of cds specifically designed to present leadership principles packaged just right for those in the younger years of life.
In the spirit of Being REAL, we launched a writing contest to all the kids on the Revolution. We asked them to write about any of the Edge cds and show how they were using the principles in their own lives. WOW! We received a lot of awesome entries. It was a blessing to read how this series of cds is affecting kids' lives.
We broke the entries into 4 categories: Preschool, elementary, middle school and high school. We chose a winner for each category and an overall grand champion! It was very difficult to choose the winners and a lot of time was spent by the judges as they went back and forth on several entries! We'd like to thank our celebrity judges Richard Kroll and Tim and Peggi Kern for taking the time to read each entry. The voting we so close we had to call in the big gun to help us choose the final Grand Champion! A big huge thank you to Laurie Woodward for casting the final vote for our GRAND CHAMPION!!!!
Each of the category winners will be featured on my blog this week. I know you will be impressed and inspired as you see the next generation learning and leading right where they are. There's so much hope, and the Edge series of cds is leading the charge in giving these kids the information they need to be world changers!!
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE PARTICIPANTS!
And great job to those who best expressed how the EDGE cds are impacting your life!
it's a tie!
