Monica S submitted this game to teach Young Women about their choices relating to the standards found in For the Strength of Youth. She says:
- I made a Choice and Accountability game where the girls have to tell how they would react in a real-life situation that has to do with the youth standards from For the Strength of Youth. I think most of the situations are up-to-date and they can actually relate to them.
To go with the 2006 mutual theme, )”Arise and Shine
Forth”), I called it “The Game of LIGHT” and made a
sign that looks like the logo of The Game of LIFE. I
used the spinner from LIFE.
The girls divided into teams and one volunteer at a
time from each team came up to the front and spun the
spinner to see how many points she could earn if she
had a satisfactory answer to the question she would
choose. I had all the questions printed out on cards
and she would choose one out of my hand, read it out
loud and tell her answer, with help from her team if
she wanted. If she gave an answer that did not show
she was committed to the standards it was turned over
to the adult leader judge who awarded her partial or
I had them win points as stars on the chalkboard and
at the end the team with the most stars had the most
“light” to share, and they won the privilege of
serving star-shaped sugar cookies to the other teams
and then having some for themselves.
Even though it wasn’t a super fun lighthearted
activity, the girls all seemed to be into it and it
brought up some discussions among them about living
the standards. Some of the girls learned something
they didn’t even know was one of our standards.
