An Inside Look at What Today's Kids Like

It's important to keep up with what today's kids like. It not only gives you insight into their world but also what they like and engage with.

Here is a list of kid-nominated entries for the 2022 Kids' Choice Awards.

I would encourage you to print this out and give it to your leaders who serve in the elementary grades. These can be great talking points for your volunteers to engage kids with.

When you show kids that you care enough about them to enter their world, it will open their heart to hear what you have to say.

This is not an endorsement of the people on this list but is simply an insight into what kids like.
