If you’ve visited our website, you know that literacy and social studies are our first love. As a EduTech company, our mission is to develop culturally aware, future leaders with the tools to ignite change on a global scale through social studies and literacy education (basically combining social studies and daily reading/writing together = funnest way to become a great global citizen). We strive to provide families and teachers with the resources they need to promote literacy and social studies awareness. That being said, this project is designed for children ages 5 and up and serves as a great learning tool to help students discover the world and practice their linguistic skills. Canadian and American students are invited to design a postcard that will be sent back to our headquarters where we will make a “Ignite Change in the World Wall of Future Leaders” with all of the postcards we receive.
Postcard Submission Deadline: Monday, January 31st, 2022
