Be Kind Belize, in cooperation with San Pedro Sun and AmbergrisCaye.com is delighted to announce ‘Kind Kids Write’, an essay writing contest open to all children living in San Pedro and in Standards 4, 5 & 6.

Be Kind Belize is a humane education programme that has been working with schools in the San Pedro community for two years. Humane education is based on the concept that all life is precious and is practiced by teaching young people the value and importance of treating other living creatures with kindness. The programme includes units on Belizean wildlife, responsibility, empathy and dog bite prevention.

In an effort to include more children in the conversations about kindness, empathy and personal responsibility, Be Kind Belize has joined up with the San Pedro Sun and AmbergrisCaye.com to launch ‘Kind Kids Write’. This will give children from all over San Pedro an opportunity to express themselves about the importance of kindness in our everyday lives and why it is important to our society. Amongst some, kindness is seen as a weakness, so children are encouraged to emphasise kindness as a strength in their essays.

Three judges will review all of the entries to announce a winner on the 20th of December. There will be First Prizes for the best girl’s and best boy’s essays. First prizes will be brand new bicycles. There will also be six Runners Up, who will receive a package of scholastic gifts. The two First Prize winners will have their entries published by the San Pedro Sun and AmbergrisCaye.com.

Kind Kids Write – Guidelines

• Essay to be written on the theme of KINDNESS.
• Only children in Standards 4, 5 & 6 attending a school in San Pedro are eligible.
• 350 words or less.
• Entries written in legible handwriting or typed are acceptable.
• Spelling and grammar will be taken into consideration by judges.
• Name, age, contact details and name of school must be included on all entries.
• Closing date is the 10th of December 2010.

Entries may be submitted by email to BeKindBelize@gmail.com or delivered in person to the San Pedro Sun offices on Front Street.
