Shankar's International Children's Competition (SICC)
K. Shankar Pillai (July 31, 1902–December 26, 1989) was a famous cartoonist. He brought out a political magazine called ‘Shankar’s Weekly’. Under the auspices of this magazine, a competition called the Shankar’s International Children’s Competition was organized in 1949. It invited paintings and writings from children in India. Children sent about 3,000 entries. The following year the competition was thrown open to children from all over the world. Today, the competition has grown and about 1,60,000 entries are received from over 130 countries. The entries are judged by an international jury. The prizewinning entries are compiled in a volume called the ‘Shankar’s Children’s Art Number’. The competition is open to children all over the world below the age of 16 years. There is no entry fee and competitors are free to choose the theme/subject they are interested in, or like most, for their paintings/ drawings/writings.

The final part of the article addresses the nuts and bolts of support group management--money issues, dealing with difficult people, and delegation.

Unschooling Explained Some More
Jeanne Musfeldt
Unschooling puts the decisions about what we will study into the hands of the children themselves. They have the desire and drive to learn, and God has filled this world with curriculum. At the heart of our unschooling journey is the belief that children learn best when I am providing them with options in an environment geared toward learning, rather than force-feeding them information.
