The Challenge is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other students in other states and in other countries. We can share our interests, our hopes for the future, and perhaps work together on solutions to problems. As we all know, our classroom is no longer confined by four walls. We are part of the global classroom, members of a global society who need to learn about and appreciate the unique qualities of each culture and live in harmony on our planet. Learning to communicate respectfully with one another is a step in the right direction toward achieving global cooperation. We can also have a lot of fun and be creative as well!
