September Newsletter - Back to School


At the start of the 2019-2020 school year - we invite you to explore and share MY HERO lesson plans with resources curated from our ever-growing media library. Enjoy short films and art with students to showcase real life heroes around the globe. Read essays and listen to podcasts that explore the theme of heroism and celebrate diverse heroes from all walks of life.

Since 1995, students and professionals have published inspiring short films, art, essays and music celebrating the best of humanity on our interactive website. We appreciate the participation of teachers who bring our resources to their classrooms and are grateful to those who share their lesson plans on integrating MY HERO into their curriculum.

As a not-for-profit educational organization, MY HERO is committed to providing a safe and commercial-free venue for students to explore the many ways they, too, can make a positive difference in the world. 

Media Arts Educators review all submissions to the website and prizes are awarded for outstanding work. MY HERO will not publish content that promotes hatred, violence, racism or sexism. 

Our team is here to support you as you take part in this global learning project. Please read on to get an overview of the many ways you can participate.

Warm regards,

The MY HERO Team
