Heroes Made announces storytelling contest for young US students

Aiming to ignite the spark of creativity in young minds across the United States, ThinkEd Corporation, a provider of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) for elementary schools in the country, in collaboration with its pioneering platform Heroes Made has rolled out a student authoring programme.

According to a relevent press release, the competition asks students at elementary schools throughout the USA to articulate their experiences of heroism, kindness, and resilience within a story or a poem (up to 1500 words) which will then sent over to the "Heroes Made Superhero Committee" with the possibility of being 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."

With roots in Cyprus, Heroes Made was launched in the United States in January, aiming to distinguish itself with its simplicity, offering educators and students immediate access to engage SEL lessons without the need for extensive preparations. Each student receives a unique avatar, promoting individuality and inclusivity, while the innovative "Student Authoring Program" intertwines writing with SEL, empowering students to express themselves creatively while honing crucial social and emotional skills. This initiative underscores ThinkEd Corporation's commitment to accessibility and impact, fostering a culture of empathy, resilience, and well-being in schools nationwide.

"Imagine a classroom where every student is not just a learner but a storyteller, weaving tales of resilience, friendship, growth, and self-discovery. That's the vision ThinkEd Corporation is bringing to life," continues Howard. "We are not just fostering a love for writing but nurturing a generation of empathetic, reflective, and creative thinkers."
