MCA Gold Award
Audience: Children

Brilliant Star empowers kids aged 8–12 to see themselves as world citizens and to use their character strengths to uplift their communities and the world. Through stories, puzzles, crafts, comics, games, activities, and art, each issue engages diverse learning styles while addressing timely themes in age-appropriate ways.

The latest series of issues covers topics including caring for the environment, developing life skills, building family unity, and establishing gender equality.

The “Harmony with Nature” issue encourages kids to use cooperation and problem-solving to address climate change and heal our planet. Readers can learn how people from diverse cultures take action, quiz themselves on Earth-saving skills, invite friends to an action challenge, and set goals for helping the environment.

“Thirst to Learn” inspires kids to develop skills that engage their curiosity. They can reflect on their inner gems, do a science experiment about the magic of teamwork, practice communicating with compassion, try out the new Imagination Station 2 art app on our website, and learn time-management strategies.

“Soaring with Unity” helps readers strengthen bonds with their families and communities. They can learn ways to deepen conversations, quiz themselves on handling conflicts, share family stories, create cool art, and play group games.

“Wings of Equality” explores gender equality with tips about standing up to stereotypes and prejudice. Kids can meet a female NASA scientist, quiz themselves on women’s rights, interview a woman they admire, learn about body image, and draw a statue that honors equality.

Brilliant Star is inspired by the teachings of the Baha’i Faith, which supports universal principles such as respect for nature, appreciation of cultural and racial diversity, and peace among all religions and nations. Our effectiveness is shown in the enthusiastic comments we get from readers:

“It makes me feel happy. It helps me because it’s really fun and it helps me calm down. I learned to never give up on my art. And I learned to be brave [and] to figure out stuff.”—Vida G., age 7

“I like that it teaches virtues and important life lessons to people . . . I have learned many important virtues, such as kindness and service. It has affected the way I treat myself and others.”—Leila M., age 12

“[I like] how exciting they make it. In each issue, as soon as I finish it, I am eager to see the next one.”—Tesina M., age 12
