Design a poster or create a video illustrating the theme of how kindness creates community. Use your imagination, creativity, and artistic talent to show others how the little things we do everyday can make our community stronger and inspire others. Start by asking yourself a few questions:
How can you be kind to others?
How has someone been kind to you?
What does it mean to be kind or part of a community?
Talk to your art teacher or media specialist for some ideas, then design a poster or create a video. #Choose2BKind WHO
