We Heart Sweety HighMarch 7th, 2012
A friend of Picture It Picture Books recently shared a CNN article about Sweety High with us, and, after reading it ourselves, we just had to pass it on to you. Although our books are aimed for the younger set, we are huge fans of anything that encourages creativity, which is Sweety High‘s mission.
The Sweety High site is an online hub for tween and teen girls to share their artistic talents with a community of like-minded, creative girls. You can upload writing, music, video footage, visual art – anything that showcases your gifts. Other sweeties can support you by giving away their virtual hearts and win real-life prizes by doing so. (Think spending the day with your favourite singer). There are sweety talent contests and spaces to write encouraging comments to other sweeties.
For girls who feel shy about performing in public, Sweety High is the perfect creative outlet. There are tight cyber-bullying controls on the site, and there are no boys allowed, so girls can unabashedly shine.
We wish we were young enough to join Sweety High! But we’ll have to accept that we’re in our thirties and just spread the word about this awesome idea!
Happy Wednesday to all those sweeties out there : )
