The Youth Bring Hope Project

Dear Young people,

In this crazy world, how will you bring hope?

The next issue of JUST Words, the Springfield Dominican Sisters’ magazine, is all about bringing hope. If there is one thing we know, it is that young people are great sources of hope for the world. For the next JUST Words published in July, we’re inviting you, the students at our other high schools, and all the young people we know, ages 9-18, to share their dreams for bringing hope to our crazy world.

Here’s how to participate:

  1. Compose a few sentences or create a work of art that answers the question: “In this crazy world, how will you bring hope?”
  2. With your parent or guardian’s help, submit your writing or artwork at this online form.
  3. Do this by May 20, 2022.

It’s that simple.

We’ll pack as many responses as we can into the article that will appear in the July issue of JUST Words. What doesn’t fit will be shared at springfieldop.org and in our social media at @springfieldop.

We will protect your privacy by only sharing your first name and the city where you live.

Thank you for helping us to share your hope-filled vision with the world!

On behalf of the JUST Words Editorial Board
