Lead a discussion or group activity that engages other girls in thinking about visionary leadership
Taking Action with a purpose and a strong vision.
From elevator speech to finished Journey Take Action Project.
Hello, my name is Lauryn.
The issue I hope to address is that people spend too much time on screens when they can be trying new activities or learning something new.
This is important to me because I love reading, and not enough people would prefer learning new things by reading or trying something they’ve never done before like baking, drawing, etc.
My take action project is creating an easily accessible website that will educate and show people new things they can try, books to read, and to learn about the impacts of too much screen time mentally and physically.
Our targeted audience is 5th-8th graders.
I hope that after my take action project is done people will spend more time trying to teach themselves new things and put down their devices for some time.
Media Journey Take Action Project - The Screen Time Initiative (6-8th grade)
Lauryn and Kaitlyn know when enough screen time is enough. But other kids their age don't. Learn about the impact of MEdia overuse and try new activities other than unproductive binge-watching and taking selfies to send to an endless amount of friends you barely know.
Explore their website to learn more and discover new activities!
Hello, my name is Anne
The issue I hope to address is Internet Safety While Posting.
This is important to me because many people post things without thinking on social media, and it comes back to bite them. Social media can say that it’s private, but as soon as you post something, the matter is out of your hands. Nothing on social media is private.
My take action project is a video that will showhow posting private information and/or photos can be dangerous.
My target audience is middle schoolers-high schoolers.
I hope that after my take action project is done many people will be more careful before posting things on social media.
Media Journey Take Action Project - Internet safety tips
For my Media Journey Take Action Project I wanted to teach kids to think before they post on social media, because if you post without thinking, it may come back to bite you! Social media may say it's private, but as soon as you post it, it is out of your hands. Nothing posted is private. I hope after you view this you will be more careful about posting. Thanks for watching!
Hello, my name is Shivani .
The issue I hope to address is Stereotyping in ads against women.
This is important to me because I’ve seen a lot of ads that portray an image that many women can’t relate to.
My take action project is a website that will educate others about stereotyping of women and its effects.
(who is it for?) My target audience is Junior Girl Scouts, who I believe are at the age where they should understand this issue.
I hope that after my take action project is done girls will feel that they are not defined by the limits people claim they have, because they are more than that.
The girls aren't limited to the visual arts for their Create-it project.
There are many reasons I choose this phototo represent Girltopia. The first reason is the idea that the world is in your hand. You have the power to mold it and shape into the ideal world. The second reason being if you have some small actions and lots of people that creates a big change for the world. One small action might help a little but it won't change the world. But if you have other people helping you and supporting you the more people want to see it change. If one person can do one thing that helps maybe only five people. And if two people do the exact same thing that would help ten people and if a third person helps it can help 15 people and so on and so forth. The more people helping to change the world the more it will change and stay that way for years to come. And then there you have it. A WORLD. A WORLD where people can't even remember a time where someone was better than the other. Everyone is just equal.
