To all Local Spiritual Assemblies
Dear Bahá’í Friends,

One of the ways in which the National Spiritual Assembly strives to support the 
spiritual and moral development of children, who are described by the Universal 
House of Justice as “the most precious treasure a community can possess,” is through 
the publication of Brilliant Star. 
Brilliant Star’s dedicated editors—in their continual efforts to meet the needs of the 
magazine’s audience—have developed an online survey, available through this link, to 
gather ideas and comments from Brilliant Star’s readers aged 7-14. We kindly request 
that you encourage families in your respective communities to help their children 
complete this survey by Wednesday, April 10. As a gesture of appreciation for their 
input, the first 75 children in the United States who complete the survey will receive a 
small gift. 
Those who wish to learn more about this award-winning educational resource for 
young people, parents, and teachers are warmly invited to visit Brilliant Star’s website 
( Last year, the website added a “Luminous Library,” a 
database of full issues of the magazine that are available to search, download, and print 
We are grateful for your efforts to share news of this survey as soon as possible in your 
communities, and eagerly look forward to receiving young readers’ valuable input to 
this beloved publication. 

With loving Bahá’í greetings,

Kenneth E. Bowers
