Guide to Developing Student Creativity in Vermont Available for Educators and Communities Vermont’s ultimate sustainable crop is the creative capacity of its students, according to a newly published guide for the state’s educators, parents and communities. The pioneering 25-page guide – “Growing the Ultimate Sustainable Crop: Creative Capacity in Vermont Students” – is available for free from the Community Engagement Lab at communityengagementlab.org. It is co-authored by acclaimed arts educator Eric Booth, and Paul Gambill, co-founder of the education non-profit. The guide grew from the 2016 Vermont Creative Learning Forum, and it is aimed at helping Vermont educators and community partners identify, develop and assess creative capacity in students. This new publication has strong implications, utility and guidance for creativityfocused programs in schools and organizations around the country. Over six days in November, 2016, the Community Engagement Lab brought together five of the nation’s most experienced teaching artists, a leading researcher, and 85 committed Vermont educators, community learning partners, and students to deepen their understanding of the ways they can develop creative capacity more effectively in their hometowns, schools and other institutions. The Forum was designed to explore how creative engagement in learning could support Act 77, the 2014 Vermont law that • • • Community Responds Generously to Capstone’s Fuel Your Neighbors Initiative In less than two months, the Fuel Your Neighbors campaign has raised nearly $70,000 in donations and match commitments to support emergency food and heating assistance for vulnerable central Vermont households. Capstone Community Action launched Fuel Your Neighbors, powered by VSECU, to raise $100,000 in three months to help prevent community members from going to sleep cold and hungry this winter. To inspire others to take part, and to help Capstone reach its goal of $100,000, National Life Group has offered to match the next $7,500 donated to this initiative. Winter is a tough time for thousands of central Vermonters. Families often must choose between basic necessities like food and heat, and children and seniors are the most vulnerable in these difficult situations. This year, Capstone will work with over 7,000 people to help put food on their table and heat in their homes. “The extreme cold snap we recently experienced has only made things tougher for those struggling to survive the cold winter months,” remarks Rubin Bennett, Board Chair of Capstone Community Action. “The community’s support of Fuel Your Neighbors is critical to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of those most vulnerable.” “Thankfully there’s a resource for anyone • • • requires students to design personalized learning plans. Personalized learning plans acknowledge each student’s individual goals, learning styles, and abilities, and require students to take a larger measure of control over their education, to envision their future and to map steps to get there. The envisioning of goals, and planning to attain them, involves at its core creative thinking. “This guide supports the development of that creative capacity for kids to take ownership of their learning,” said Booth. After defining creativity in a teacherfriendly way, this guide details five core building blocks that must be in place to foster creative learning, and the four key capacities and skill sets within the creative process that educators must target. The guide is illustrated with photographs of Vermont students engaged in creative learning; these include the Community Engagement Lab’s teaching artist residency projects that use creative engagement as a teaching and learning pathway within core curriculum subjects. “Creativity is contagious,” said Albert Einstein. “Pass it on.” For more information on the new creative capacities guide, contact Paul Gambill at email@example.com or 802.595.0087. in our community struggling with the cold bite of winter: Capstone’s Fuel Your Neighbors program,” states Beth Rusnock, President of the National Life Group Foundation. “Winters in Vermont are long; let’s work together to make sure that they’re manageable for our vulnerable neighbors.” Fuel Your Neighbors is a giving campaign, powered by VSECU with additional support from National Life Group and The Point FM to raise money for Capstone Community Action’s emergency food and heating assistance services.

Vermont Agency of Education Awards 25 Presidential Scholar Nominees The Vermont Agency of Education has recognized the state’s 2018 Presidential Scholar nominees in a ceremony at the Vermont Statehouse. The Vermont Presidential Scholars Program recognizes graduating high school seniors who show outstanding scholarship, leadership and service to their communities. Twenty (10 male and 10 female) scholars are nominated in the general category, and five scholars are nominated in the Career and Technical Education category (CTE). All Vermont scholars will be invited to apply to the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program, which will announce its winners in May 2018. Additional Vermont students may be chosen to apply by the U.S. Department of Education based on ACT and SAT scores. Each year, up to 161 students are named as national Presidential Scholars – one of the highest honors for high school students. “I am so proud to have these students representing Vermont as U.S. Presidential Scholar nominees,” Secretary Holcombe said. “Their exceptional academics and skills, as well as their personal leadership and service, are what set them apart.” Career and Technical Education Presidential Scholars 1. Taylor Florence, Engineering & Advanced Manufacturing Program, Green Mountain Technical and Career Center Winners of MLK JR. Poster-Essay Contest Announced The Vermont Bar Association, in partnership with its Diversity Section and Young Lawyers Division, sponsored a Martin Luther King, Jr. Poster-Essay Contest to celebrate the life and message of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle school students were asked to create a poster and write a short essay interpreting what Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech means to them. One winner and two runners-up were selected by the committee from many beautiful and thoughtful entries from throughout the state. Governor Phil Scott presented awards to the winning students at the Statehouse. Gracie Lawrence, a 5th grader from Hardwick Elementary School in Hardwick, was presented with the first-place plaque and traveling trophy for her school. Tobianna Aldrich, an 8th grader from Manchester Elementary- Middle School in Manchester, received the first runner-up plaque and the team of Rowan Morgan and Chandler Neveu, both 5th graders from the Main Street Middle School in Montpelier, received the second runner-up plaque. The students and their teachers and families were photographed with their winning submissions and Governor Scott. The Governor spoke of the importance of Dr. King’s message today, including the importance of being kind to one another and to “tweet others as you would like to be tweeted” on social media. After the ceremony, the group attended a statehouse tour and then were invited to the Vermont Supreme Court where they were greeted by Chief Justice Paul Reiber. Justice Reiber congratulated the students, handed out VBA pocket constitutions, and spoke to the importance of the historic document and of Dr. King’s legacy. The students’ posters and essays will be on display at the Supreme Court building throughout the month of January. They will also be featured in the Vermont Bar Journal. The VBA would like to congratulate all of the participants who submitted such excellent entries. Special thanks to Governor Scott, the Sergeant-at-Arms, and Chief Justice Reiber, as well as to all of their staff members for making the event so memorable for the winning students, their teachers and families.
