Finding Kind

Kindness in Action Video & Essay Contest

As a continuation of our March Finding Kind documentary screening we invite girls and women to show through images and words how self-responsibility and a commitment to standing up to bullying behaviors can lead to a kinder, more vibrant community for all.

An essay contest is open to girls ages 10-12, and a video contest is open to girls and women ages 13+. Each age category will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners who will receive prize packages valued at $50-$150.

Speaker Bio:

The center is a 2.8 million dollar building project gaining regional and national recognition. She is a graduate of St. Norbert College with a degree in communications and emphasis in women’s and gender studies and religious studies. She has spoken and facilitated workshops at hundreds of events across the country with groups as large as 700. Ms. Czarnik-Neimeyer is particularly passionate about experiential education and has presented her curriculum at the Association for Experiential Education’s international conference. A daughter of a camp director, she grew up living and working at camps for 22 years before becoming the national events coordinator at Holden Village, a ecumenical learning and retreat center in the Cascade Mountains. In addition, Ms. Czarnik-Neimeyer was a Girl Scout for several years in her hometown of Appleton, Wisconsin, and is proud of all her badges—especially her leadership badge. She dreams of a women’s and gender studies badge being added to the Girl Scout badge curriculum! Most importantly, she notes, she can light a one match fire in the rain.
