Here is Your Chance for Storytelling Stardom!

NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In an ambitious move to ignite the spark of creativity in young minds across the United States, ThinkEd Corporation, an innovative provider of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) for elementary schools, in collaboration with its pioneering platform Heroes Made (https://heroesmade.com/), is thrilled to roll out the “Student Authoring Program.”

Inviting elementary schools throughout USA, the competition asks students to articulate their experiences of heroism, kindness, and resilience within a story or a poem (up to 1500 words) to be then sent over to the “Heroes Made Superhero Committee” with the opportunity to have the story printed and published on the Heroes Made global platform.

“With participation completely free, every student has a voice in this literary competition, and every teacher becomes a catalyst for change, guiding these young authors in their quest for storytelling excellence,” says Maria Lavithi Howard, CEO of Heroes Made. “This unique initiative is more than just a competition. It’s a way for children to embark on a journey of imagination, emotion, and self-expression and we have plans to expand this competition to any U.S. primary school throughout.”
