International Dot Day

How to Get Involved

Here's what you can do to join us


Our Dot Day Partners

International Dot Day is inspired by the book, The Dot by Peter Reynolds, in which one young person named Vashti finds confidence by never giving up, commits to starting somewhere and seeing where it takes her. This inspirational story has become a movement to "celebrate creativity, courage, and collaboration." Each year thousands more students across the globe join in the fun and celebrate to share how they will make their mark on the world.

Here in Alaska, we connect with the world through technology to share how we will globally "make our mark." Join us!

Thank you for the invitation, our kids loved reading the book and got inspired to draw and make their contribution!
