Word of the Week Winner & New Word
iTwixie Word of the Week

Congratulations @madeline! You just won the Word of the Week Challenge! Here’s @madeline‘s sentence using last week’s word, hangar:

When we went to the Air and Space Museum, it was like walking through a time warp hangar, with all kinds of planes and aircrafts from so many years ago.

So @madeline, just send your parent’s mailing address to info@itwixie.com within the next 30 days, and we’ll send you a PRIZE! How cool is that?

THIS WEEK’S WORD OF THE WEEK: FEMINIST. A feminist is a person who supports a woman’s human rights: her right to an education, to play sports, to fulfill her dreams, to get a good job and to earn the equivalent pay for the same work, as a man.   

Here’s How the Word of the Week Challenge Works:

Check with iTwixie every Wednesday at 9 am Eastern Time to see who won last week’s challenge and get the new word for this week. Then just write a sentence in the comments section below. All week long, we’ll collect your sentences and we’ll use a random drawing to select a winner by the following Wednesday morning, at 9 am. The winner will get a cool prize! It’s that easy!

Be sure to take a minute and congratulate @madeline! Way to go, girl! Now, will YOU be next week’s winner? Give it a try and we’ll see!

You are Created Equal
We Want YOU

At iTwixie, we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all girls and boys are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

We borrow this simple truth from the Declaration of Independence, and alter it ever-so-slightly to specifically include girls and boys, and not just specify men.

We share it today to inspire YOU.

You are endowed by your Creator the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Do you feel it? Is anything standing in your way? Tell us right here!
