Random Acts of Kindness 2021 Contest
Submission Form - must be completed, signed and submitted with digital story
To recognize Random Acts of Kindness week, the Community Engagement Action Team (CEAT) is hosting a Digital Story Contest to encourage community members to reflect on kindness they have experienced, shown or witnessed. We are asking that you consider the importance and impact kindness can have on another individual, to promote kindness in our community.
Random Acts of Kindness Week events will happen in our community February 14-20th, 2021. Stories created by you will be posted on our CEAT social media platforms, as well as shared by our members to their respective Organization’s pages.
Purpose: To get more and more people talking about the same issue at the same time for as long as possible. The dialogue within communities is the easiest way to teach and educate and reduce bullying and harm.
The Community Engagement Action Team is a community based society which collectively share resources to promote a healthy, thriving and engaged community for the people of Edson and Yellowhead County through various initiatives and educational events that enhance the safety and well being of all. CEAT has partnered with Velvet Energy for the Bullying Awareness t-shirt campaign. This fall, new students in Kindergarten and grades 7+ will receive t-shirts to wear as part of the Bullying Awareness Campaign. The kindergartners will receive the PINK design from last year. Our older students will be receiving a black t-shirt "Be Kind. It Only Takes One." as designed by students in Edson.
VISION: A healthy, thriving, engaged community
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
