Writing Competition

Write to Inspire Diversity Writing Contest

Lead Ambassadors, Noor and Sanah, have a passion for writing and previously led a series of writing workshops at the Boys & Girls Club. They are excited to launch this writing competition and provide a vehicle for kids to share their own experiences with diversity.

Project History

Write to Inspire was started in 2018 by KHK Ambassador, Brooke Lange. As a student at Greenwich Academy, Brooke cultivated her love of writing and really enjoys expressing herself through the written word. During the summer, she led a series of workshops to teach children at the Boys & Girls Club all about writing. Once she graduated from high school, Brooke passed on the torch to Noor and Sanah. The sisters launched their project in October 2019 and returned every Friday afternoon to share their love of writing!
