The Empowerment Factory’s (TEF) CREATIVITY CONTEST
The Empowerment Factory (TEF) needs your help. TEF is a non-profit organization based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, that aims to empower youth by promoting creativity, civic pride, and self-esteem. TEF is currently running a monthly “Creativity Contest” for Rhode Island students grades K-5 from May to October. For more information, link to Monthly Creativity Contest. The contest leads up to TEF’s 4th Annual Healthy Living Community Adventure in the Fall.
The Creativity Contest is an opportunity for kids to win prizes each month and become what we like to call a “community hero.” Each month presents a different topic for children to interpret what it means to them through a picture or short story/poem. These topics include: Kindness, Empathy, Friendship, Teamwork, and Happiness. We already had entries submitted for last month’s topic, “What is Kindness?”, and are currently accepting entries for this month’s topic “What is Empathy?” until July 14th.
