Every student wants to achieve. What enables some students to go further?

It's GRIT -- also known as hard work, determination, perseverance, and resilience. The Grit Game Show equips your students with the resilience to bounce back from problems and failures. In our 60-minute assembly, student volunteers become contestants -- and the audience gets involved, too! We introduce the Growth Mindset and challenge students to see failure as a prelude to success. Our content-rich, motivational program for grades 3-8 motivates your students with the GRIT they need to succeed!

Our High-Energy Onstage Games

Choose Your Future

In our first competition, we'll explore what it takes for students to reach long-term goals, like landing their dream job.

The Loser's Club

Everybody fails sometimes. The only difference between success and failure is coming back to try again! We'll peek into the lives of famous people and learn how they overcame setbacks.

Talking Back

We challenge students to change negative self-talk (like "I'm not smart enough to understand the lesson") into positive, growth-oriented ideas (like "If I work hard, I can learn this").

Real Life Grit

In a tween-friendly way, we introduce students to Dr. Carol Dweck's research about Growth vs. Fixed Mindsets, and challenge students to always demonstrate grit!
