For Grades 3-8 | 60 Minutes | Up to 400 Students | $400
In our first competition, we’ll explore what it takes for students to reach long-term goals, like landing their dream job.
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.
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”).
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!
“The Grit Game Show was an extremely engaging and interactive program . . . In the weeks and months after the program, I was able to witness many situations where students used the knowledge and skills [from the program] to help solve their own problems.”
– Kevin Weihe, Guidance Counselor, Lebanon Junction Elementary School (Lebanon Junction, KY)
“The Grit Game Show was exciting, fun for kids, and relevant! . . . The only thing I wish I had done differently was bring Drama By George to our school earlier!”
– Jackie Duvall, FRYSC Coordinator, Painted Stone Elementary School (Shelbyville)
“An incredibly engaging performance by Drama by George on GRIT! The Stopher kids loved it and learned a ton about tenacity.”
– Tamara Hedrick, Teacher, Stopher Elementary School (Louisville, KY)
The Grit Game Show has been one of our most popular programs ever with teachers and students. That’s why we’ve introduced an all-new version! The interactive format remains the same, but the games and content are completely new, with an emphasis on achieving goals. Learn more.
