2019 Think Kind Competition Winners

2019 Think Kind Competition Winners

record number of entries have been submitted this year. We received so many well-written essays, poems, narratives, stories, letters, informative slides, cute drawings, creative posters, smart and educational videos, a song that has been performed in front of a whole class, action projects…and Scratch coding projects! The creativity of the students is very impressive! It made the judging process hard, but we have selected the top 10 best projects.
