Awesome inspiration. Even as a young adult when I go geocaching I feel that wonderful youthful feeling of adventure. It is creative and fulfilling. It's as though the movie 'the goonies' has come to life. Its a wonderful activity that beats video games and the television. It highly interests me how we could integrate this into the challenge.
I agree that many parent are not a good source of confidence and are not approving of creative endeavors. There needs to be a good way in which we can target parents and other role models rather than teens themselves. If parents don't believe in their own child, who else will? So much of a teens world their ideas, beliefs and thoughts are taken from their guardians. Only if creative confidence were too.
