is to promote literacy, child-by-child, school-by-school, engaging as
many children as possible. When the stories are brought to life on Green Screen Adventures,
the student authors realize that their words have power and that their
voices are being heard which in turn grows self-esteem and builds
enthusiasm for reading and writing.

authors have garnered acclaim nationwide in their communities through
featured articles, mayoral recognition, celebrations, and school and
other civic commendations.
