Making a Great Law
GUNEET KAUR
mill creek elementary

An adventurous story with twists and turns -- you might not know what is coming. So watch out! Me and my friends didn't know what was going to happen when we arrived at school. But we knew we had to be safe. That's how we changed the world!

My work is a movie about making a new gun law. This is a good law because less people would get hurt. Also less people would be in jail. I can change the world by talking to a Representative and asking them what their idea is and introducing a new bill. New bills can help save people's lives and make the world a better place.

Our Worldwide Problem
Lyla Speicher
belinder elementary

I made this iMovie because I love the ocean, and I love sharks. There is a problem with overfishing. If we can stop overfishing, that can make a big change in our environment. Sharks are a big part of our environment because they keep the ocean healthy. We have to have a healthy ocean to have a healthy earth.

I was inspired by the looks of the world around me, all the people, all the trash. I see so much trash on the roads and land. All the news I watch, all the books I read. Everything has a message in the end. I've seen so many heros, people who help the earth. Yet it is still not enough. I want to get everybody (almost) to help. People know there's a problem, they just let it hit the future. My film explains all that needs to be done, and other problems that relate. The work of someone who cares.

It's the Little Things
that Count

Riley Marshall
lenexa hills elementary

During the pandemic I had a school project to create a stop motion that has a good message. So I created Bloom. I made the characters, the sets, edited it, used my brother for a voiceover. The message I felt really strong about. I knew that there needs to be more kindness in the world. If one person spreads kindness it keeps going to the next. That is where the flowers come into play: the flowers represent a person. They are crumbled at first when they are sad and when one person is kind to them their flower blooms.

My work is about a girl (Me) who decides that she wants to go shopping and support local businesses. This is how I will change the world. Her adventures are a minute long and stop motion animation.

My work is a video about how every kid deserves an education. It is also about how you can donate to people in need. It relates to the theme because you can change the world with little acts, they don't have to be a big deal.
