One Stone to Create World Record Breaking Mural to Promote Student Voice 2016

How do you take the message of student voice to the global level? You break a world record! Team One Stone undertook a massive creative effort to take our message of “disrupt for good” to a whole other level with the world’s largest mosaic mural made entirely out of Post-It Notes. Three days, hundreds of volunteers, and thousands of sticky little office supplies made for a powerful statement of what’s possible when a community of people come together to create something BIG.
