The Creative Challenge By Curious Times

The Creative Challenge By Curious Times is the biggest global creativity challenge, where more than 3000 students from over 1000 schools are expected to participate. It is their opportunity to showcase their special talent and creativity and get published in My Expressions, Curious Times Weekly Newspaper and The Curious Magazine.

Did you ever realise that there could be 7.9 billion skills on this blue planet? We all are creative and have unique skills. Our creativity builds every single day from an early age. It is just that we are never too sure or confident of our special talent. We all are specialists in some areas, developing in some others. But we promise to you that each one of us is hugely talented.

There is a lot of emphasis on the 21st Century Skills Among Children, which are very different from the 20th Century Skills your parents and teachers grew up with. Creativity, Critical thinking, Communication and Collaboration are the most important skills. These skills do not build overnight. We make many small and big efforts to build these skills over the years. Do you know, you have to be eternally Curious to build these skills. All activities on Curious Times are directed towards bringing these skills among children. We aim to showcase your creativity, and critical thinking to the world to build your confidence.

The Creative Challenge By Curious Times is bringing opportunities to children to participate and create their digital footprint.
