Amazing Kids! of the Month for August, 2000:
Amazing Teen Writers & Artists, TeenInk Magazine, Newton, Massachusetts!
Quote of the month:
"I strongly believe teenagers need to be heard, so when I read your magazine, I was very moved. We have been given an opportunity to express our thoughts, feelings and show our talents. It is nice to see that people my age have so much talent and drive.
"Our generation has a voice - and not a negative one."
- Zoraida T., Auburn, NY
