My daughter recently got involved with the organization Kidizenship and told me about this contest for kids 8-18. I thought it sounded like such a great idea, and I love a platform where kids are encouraged to express themselves through writing, performing, singing and getting involved.

Not to mention the judges are out of this world!

BrandNewNoise hopes it's instruments and recorders are tools that encourage everyone to let their creativity and voice be heard.

Kidizenship will convene respectful conversations and publish powerful content by and for young people about building a brighter future and an inclusive, just, and sustainable democracy.  

Kidizenship is where citizens come of age.
