We are happy to announce that two of the 10 students who competed in the National High School Journalism Convention Write-Off competition received awards. They were among the 811 high school students honored nationally at the competition held Nov. 2. Nearly 6,000 attended the convention in Chicago
Dani's Dreams sponsored the students in the contest as part of our Urban Media Project initiative, which helps high school students connect with the world by creating meaningful media.
How does your donation or sponsorship change the world?
School budgets are being cut everywhere and innovative programs are put on the “back burner.” It’s harder and harder for kids to get to experience the world and to actually connect with it… the real world, not just through a screen or a digital device, but with their hands, eyes, ears, and feet!
"As children observe, reflect, record, and share nature’s patterns and rhythms, they are participating in a process that promotes scientific and ecological awareness, problem solving, and creativity.” –Deb Matthews Hensley, early childhood consultant
Dani’s Dreams Innovation in Education Corp. led the way in celebrating “Fit Minds and Healthy Bodies” and discovering how to keep them that way during Children’s Museum Night, Feb. 1 at Zion Lutheran School.

EcoFest 2017 was all about area kids “Blazing a Trail” at the site of Dani’s Dreams Outdoor Education Trail at Sugar Creek Park in New Palestine. Hands-on adventures – from meeting crooked leg turtle, creating crafts, to eating bugs were the order of the day. NPHS teacher Brittany Bennett and her students ran the show.
