CANFIELD, Ohio (WYTV) – With all the unrest in the world, students at Canfield High School wanted to take some time for peace on Wednesday.
The class of 2020 is taking part in an international art and literacy project called Pinwheels for Peace. The project gave them a chance to get creative — designing and creating pinwheels to plant outside the school.
The goal of the pinwheels is to bring attention to world and local issues. Students also wrote their thoughts about war and piece, tolerance and living in harmony on the other side.
“We wanted to do it because it’s a great way — one, to get writing incorporated, but also on a topic that is meaningful to the world now, as well as it is going to be in the future,” said ninth grade student Callia Barwick.
Pinwheels for Peace started in Florida in 2005. Last year, it reached more than 4.5 million people around the world.
