Contest Questions

 

What does my safe and healthy future look like?

I think my future is looking good from where I am now, to be an athletic softball player, or if that doesn’t work out right, for a backup I could have a cosmetologist license if plan A doesn’t work out the way I planned.

What do I need to do to get there?

I need to continue to keep my grades up, and make sure I’m doing what I’m supposed to do, to do what I want to do.

How can my community help me?

Many adults in my community can help donate money to help me get to college and the other places I need to go in life.

What does community mean to me?

The word community means the people in my surroundings, and in my neighborhood and on my street, the people walking around me and the people who come together is a community.
