The theme for the Young Authors’ Project is “Let Your Light Shine.” This theme can be interpreted and expressed in a variety of ways and can include the following ideas and perspectives:

  • Be yourself and be proud of who you are;
  • Discuss how you share/can share your talent(s) with others;
  • Write about how you have spread joy and kindness;
  • Share how you found the positive during challenging times;
  • Share how you have been a positive influence to someone and inspired others; or,
  • Describe how you can make change happen.

So, Young Authors, tell us about YOU! "Let Your Light Shine!"
