How to Enter



STEP 1 Student's Entry

Students are asked to tell us about their dream...and how they hope to achieve it. Any medium can be used – prose, poetry, photography, collage, sculpture or painting – depending upon the interest of the individual child.

STEP 2 Parent's Entry

A parent, mentor, trusted adult, or someone who cares, is asked to show how they will encourage and support their child's dream.

This may include what they have done, or will do to support and encourage theirs child's hopes, passions and commitment, while fostering an understanding of choice, and the power of working together. Our hope is that this will allow each parent to communicate their commitment, understanding and dedication to helping their children make "good choices".
Lastly, please use any form of creative expression and have fun!
