With all these findings in mind, Scholastic just launched its fourth annual “Clifford BE BIG in Your Community” national contest! Designed to inspire people to engage in service and volunteerism, the contest invites kids of all ages, teachers, parents and community leaders to submit proposals that demonstrate how Clifford’s BIG Ideas (Share, Help Others, Be Kind, Be Responsible, Play Fair, Be a Good Friend, Believe in Yourself, Have Respect, Work Together and Be Truthful) can make the world a better place. Submitted ideas vie for the chance to win up to $10,000 in community grants from the BE BIG Fund in order to implement the winning proposals! (The grand prize winner receives a $5,000 community grant. Five first place winners will receive $1,000 each.) This contest ends June 22, 2012.
Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, teacher, child care provider or anyone who engages regularly with children, I hope you’ll consider the many ways in which you can help kids develop good character. Teach them Clifford’s BIG Ideas, and help them to come up with ways in which they can implement them at home and school, and in their community.
