The Creative Challenge Season 2 By Curious Times

The Creative Challenge By Curious Times is the biggest global creativity challenge, where more than 5,000 students from over 500 schools are expected to participate. It is an opportunity for students to showcase their special talent and creativity and get published in My ExpressionsCurious Times Weekly Newspaper and The Curious Magazine.

Well, there could be more than 7.9 billion skills on this blue planet? We all are creative and have unique skills. 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.

The main emphasis of Curious Times is to bring opportunities to build 21st Century Skills Among Children, which are very different from the 20th Century Skills your parents. Creativity, Critical thinking, Communication and Collaboration are the most important skills. We aim to showcase your creativity, and critical thinking to the world to build your confidence.

The jury will also look into the special remarks and appreciation received by participants from other members. These include non-participating members also. If your teachers, schools, families or friends want to send comments, they have to log in/ sign-up to give their remarks.

THE DECISION OF THE JURY WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING.
