TRUST Pennsylvania, TRUST Arizona and TRUST Alaska from the series Stories of Trust: Calling for Climate Recovery have been accepted as finalists in the 2012 MYHERO International Film Festival. The films will be celebrated online in our 2012 Festival Finalist's page at myhero.com/films and will be promoted as part of an ever-growing Global Hero Archive. This festival and the MY HERO Project uses media and technology to celebrate the best of humanity and empower people of all ages to realize their own potential to effect positive change in the world. Since 1995, they have provided free resources to schools, libraries, after-school workshops, and community and media centers around the world to build student's 21st Century skills, stimulate character development and engage them in thinking critically about heroism, personal and cultural values, human rights, and environment issues. To support class and partner projects, MY HERO distributes DVDS, books, equipment, and lesson plans that bring students, teachers and communities together for local, international or online celebrations. Virtual classrooms called Learning Circles allow students to communicate and collaborate, fostering an appreciation for diversity and a sense of global citizenship. MY HERO’s educational resources are used by approximately 10 million participants age 2-94 from over 190 countries each year.
