    More help with (Title for a) speech needed...

    Okay my wordsmiths... here is your challenge!

    Daughter has been selected to be the first student in the 11 year history of an Arts Education Conference to give the Keynote speech. While she has until the end of the month to finish her speech and the conference is in June, they want the title for her speech NOW so they can promote it.

    So, we are trying to come up with some really good titles that would make people WANT to attend the conference and listen to a 14 year old student talk about why Arts Education is important. Her speech is going to include a slide show presentation showing the students from her school having all sorts of fun, and then her speech will be about 10 minutes on top of that.

    She is explaining to all these adults, who are politicians (who decide if they should fund arts education) and teachers in the art field, from a "kid's" point of how wonderful it is to be able to attend a school designed around the arts. How many students who would have dropped out or given up, are now flourishing at the school. And how if students actually enjoy school, then they will learn.

    So, what suggestions do you have for a title that will catch people's attention and make them interested in hearing her speech and not just go "oh great, some kid is giving the keynote, I'll skip this one"

    There is one thing that her school does do interesting in their slogan...and that is a play on the word "smart"... they say the school "is the smART Choice." if that helps anyone.

    (if it helps...here is the song she is going to use in the background for the slide show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tukPRpRKnjk )

    Thanks for you help with this one!!!!

    "Should we allow a kid to love the world"

    we - all these adults, who are politicians ...
    allow a kid - the choice between wonderful and flourishing education for the kid
    love the world - why Arts Education is important
    So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

    It-ogo proposed a good one. Also, something that could come from a kid is: "Aren't we smART?"

    What do you think about these combinations?:

    The Impact of Arts Education: Aren’t we smART?
    The Impact of Arts Education: Art as a part of smart start.
    Learning in and Through the Arts: Aren’t we smART?
    Learning in and Through the Arts: Art as a part of smart start.

    like it, it's okay, let's keep thinking, hate it, love it???

    Okay the winner is.....
    Learning in and Through the Arts: Aren’t we smART?

    daughter and principal REALLY like "Aren’t we smART?" and thought about using that as a stand alone but as it is a conference thought the title should have some more meat to it.

    Thanks everyone and to Croc our winner

    Thanks you! Thank you, everybody! Umm.. It was so surprising.. I wasn't prepared... Umm... I would like to thank rockzmom's daughter and the school principal for their consideration. I would also like to thank Master Admin for his inspiring wits and humor on April the 1st. And the last but not the least, thank you, the developers of the phpBB! Without your outstanding work, none of us would have posted what we had! Thank you!
