Shamrock Spark Project

April 21, 2020

Inspired by the words of Dr. Amy Acton at the Spirit of Columbus Award Acceptance Speech on April 17, 2020, we’ve created an activity to share the positive aspects of our quarantine.  Dr. Acton said:

  • “We all have something to give, and it is that vital.”
  • “It is that ‘art of the possible’ spirit that is going to take us through this next phase we’re going to go through together and every one of us is innovating and creating new sparks. And for young people out there watching this, each of us really is a spark and whether someone sees it or doesn’t see it, I’ve just already in this journey seen so many things made possible that were not possible before. And we will not be the same Ohio when this is over. There will be so many more things through the hardships that we are going through together that will be made possible by each and every one of us. And I really hope that you’ll let those sparks of yourself continue to shine no matter who you are out there.”

Our project is to create Shamrock Sparks to send to Governor DeWine and Dr. Acton. Check out the resources below to get started today!
