BROOKLYN, N.Y. - June 10, 2019 - PRLog -- KidSpirit (https://kidspiritonline.com), the award-winning online magazine and community by and for 11-to-17-year-olds, is delighted to announce the winners of its annual KidSpirit Awards today. The awards, chosen by the magazine's all-youth editorial boards around the world, recognize contributors for outstanding expository writing, personal essays, poetry, and artwork featured in KidSpirit in the last year. Over 70 editors selected pieces from issues on The Speed of Now, Storytelling and Narrative, The Adventurous Spirit, and Reality and Perception.

KidSpirit provides a unique forum for young people to explore life's big questions, and award recipients represent the wide range of perspectives, backgrounds, and interests that make up the magazine's global community. This year's award-winning pieces showcase brave, creative, and inspiring approaches to a wide array of substantive topics.

Each issue of KidSpirit revolves around a Big Question posed by the editors. The 2019 Big Question Award goes to a writer from Maine who explores how technology alters our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

In the Features department, editors recognize teens in New York and India for a short story on self-expression, an article on the benefits of a growth mindset, and a one-act play about complex family relationships.

Winners in the Awesome Moments department include authors from Kentucky and Pakistan who wrote about the transformative impact of community service and the importance of venturing beyond our comfort zones. Interfaith Connections Awards acknowledge youth from Pakistan, Colorado, and California for essays on the ways heritage shapes our worldview, the limited power of commercial spiritual aids, and the beauty of a multifaith upbringing. The editors also selected winners from India, Singapore, California, New York, Kentucky, and Paraguay in the Poetry and Art departments, highlighting the creative ways contributors around the world have shared their inner wisdom on this year's themes.

The 2019 PerSpectives Award — the only award reserved for an adult author — goes to Dr. Anil Seth for his piece "Reality Is Not What It Seems — and Neither Are You!"  Dr. Seth draws on his expertise as a neuroscientist to explain the processes that shape our perception.
