Hello Owlets! Zel here with the OWLS February round-up. On behalf of the everyone here on the OWLS team, we’d like to thank all our participants and readers for this month’s blog tour. We had another great month full of different looks at this month’s theme of: Competition.
We’d also like to give a big warm welcome to Matt Doyle, our newest contributing member to the OWLS family! 🙂
In honor of the 2018 Winter Olympics, this month topic will focus on the theme, “Competition” because the Olympics is where athletes from all countries join together to compete in sporting events. Through these events, we see how “competition” brings out the grit, the teamwork, and the competitive spirit within athletes. This month, we will be exploring anime and pop culture media that discusses the good and the bad when it comes to competition and what it can teach us about ourselves and the world around us.
