Mission Statement: The primary goal of this event is to give youth a platform to share their ideas in their community while gaining public speaking and leadership skills primarily to those who have not had the opportunity to do so in the past.
Vision: The vision for this event is to provide an opportunity for the youth within the 30-mile radius of Stratham, NH to write speeches, poetry, and/or spoken word(including song) about any topic they choose that falls under the theme “Ctrl+Alt+Delete: Resetting the Way We Think”.
We choose ~20 students total from grades 5-12 and host an event where everyone shares about different topics that fall under this theme, Ctrl+Alt+Delete: Resetting the Way We Think”. Students will go through a selection process, The time limit for the talks would be 10 minutes max, making the talks themselves on the shorter side, 5 minutes max for spoken word, poetry, and song+dance. This event will be a night of creativity and allows kids to speak their truths.
