Fort Johnson Middle School sixth-graders in Julie Bullard’s English Language Arts recently posed for a picture in front of a billboard to promote their project, #kidsrise: Changing the World One Hashtag at a Time.

Students in this class found out that even ancient civilizations had trends, at both the peak of each civilization and just before their fall. These studies led to the #kidsrise campaign, which promotes “rising” behaviors that benefit the school, community, nation and the world. 

Students made multimedia presentations, created a website and promoted the their positive message via social media. Their ultimate goal was to earn enough money to pay for a billboard in Charleston that would direct traffic to their social media pages. They raised funds through GoFundMe to pay for a sign on Folly Road, which is estimated to be viewed by 54,000 people every week.

The #kidsrise social media pages help others learn about positive "rising" traits such as authenticity and bravery.

Students also plan to paint a boat on Folly Road to promote their campaign.
