A Message from Our Founder
Thank you so much for visiting the Amazing Kids! website. Welcome! I am delighted to have you join us and our nearly 1 million other website visitors each year, on our exciting journey, as we work to inspire, guide and support our children today so they may become happy, productive and fulfilled citizens of tomorrow.
I firmly believe that with the right guidance, and a positive attitude that we in turn can teach our children, our kids can grow up to have the bright future, and a successful and fulfilling lives as adults, which they so richly deserve.
I invite you to take sit back, relax and some time to explore the wonderful and educationally enriching resources which we offer on our award-winning website.
Please be sure to read through our website and magazine with your child or students, as I believe it presents a wonderful opportunity to share some special time together, exploring the inspiring work of other kids. In doing so, you can help inspire the children in your lives to explore and discover their own unique gifts, abilities and interests.
At the same time, you are invited to encourage your children or students to submit their writing or art for our publication (read our Submission guidelines) or for our fun, creative contests. Seeing their creative work published on such a high profile website as amazing-kids.org is truly motivating for many kids. You just might find that your previously reluctant readers or writers may blossom when given the opportunity to see their work recognized online!
Finally, after reading our website, if you have any questions or comments you’d like to share, please feel free to connect with us through our Facebook page, blog or Twitter feed, to tell us how we’re doing, or to offer suggestions or ask questions. We’d love to hear from you!
P.S. -I am delighted to report that we were recently honored to be selected as one of the Top 24 “Great Web Sites for Kids” by the American Library Association (ALA), specifically under the category: “Writing by Kids.” It feels good knowing our work is being validated by other such well-respected educational organizations like the ALA. Thank you, ALA!
As the founder and president of Amazing Kids!, I have had the privilege and honor to serve as the mentor to all the kids who work on our magazine over the past 11+ years and 42+ issues. I do feel like a mother hen sometimes, so I hope you’ll allow me this moment to say just how proud I am of all of our kids who write for and edit our Amazing Kids! Online Magazine. Way to go, Team!
P.S.S. – I’d like to personally invite you to consider making a donation to show your support for our work and the work of our kids. As a small non-profit organization, we rely on the support and donations from people like you.
