Encouraging our children and teenagers think big

big dreamSusanna Scott, co-founder of Brit Mums is a proud judge of Dream a Big Dream which is a new national writing competition for children aged 9 to 14 with a mission to encourage them to think big about their hopes and dreams.

Organised by Kip McGrath Education Centres, it’s a great opportunity to invite your child to write about their ‘Big Dream’. Whether they want to be an astronaut, a film director, a footballer or an accountant! Dream a Big Dream is all about encouraging them to put down in words what they hope to achieve in the future.

Susanna explains why she decided to get involved in the competition: “As parents we’re committed to helping our children fulfil their potential as they mature and grow up. Key to this is encouraging them to think about their dreams and believe in them. Setting down your dream is an important step to achieving it and I look forward to reading some amazing entries when I judge the competition.”

Entrants have the chance to win some fantastic prizes including £100 worth of Amazon vouchers and a commemorative book featuring the winning entries.

The competition website is full of ideas and inspiration including inspiring videos from three amazing athletes who are all training to pursue their Big Dream of representing Great Britain at the Rio 2016 Games.

The athletes have shared their big dreams and what it means to follow your dream. Rachel Johncock, a 100m sprinter who represented Great Britain in the World Junior Championships, said: “If myself, or any of the other athletes involved in this competition can inspire even just one young person to chase their dreams, then it will be worth it.”
