What does the Formula for Choosing Love or the power of the message of Choosing Love mean to you and your students? How do your students practice and demonstrate Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in their classrooms and in their lives? Tell us your story through videos and/or artwork. This can be done as a school or individual classroom project.

Last year students from schools all over Connecticut created beautiful and powerful ‘Choose Love’ murals that were presented at an event hosted by US Senator Blumenthal at Quinnipiac University. These later were formally shown in an installation in our Nation’s Capitol in Washington D.C.


This year we would like to post videos and artwork from across the country on our social media pages. These might also be shared on local news and national television so please indicate that you have received proper parental permission.

We can’t wait to see what you and your students come up with! We want to share all of the wonderful things you are doing to spread the message of Choosing Love!


Participate in this important week by sending your videos and artwork to us at

Thanks for Choosing Love!
