I created the Scratch animation The Race as my response to a project to create an interactive ethical story. An ethical story is a story in which the character is forced to make a tough decision which will impact important things in there lives. One decision is right and one decision although it may help you in the short-term will hurt because it was not the right thing to do.
My story is about a girl that has a race to run during track and she is very nervous about it. She really doesn’t want to lose and even though she has trained hard for it she is still scared and unsure if she will really be able to win the race. She found steroids and had to decide whether to take them or not to take them.
My story was inspired by people who have been caught cheating in races and could have gotten close to winning without cheating. I think they should have been honorable and taken second or third and not cheated to get in first place.
I think I was successful in creating my story because I think it showed good morals about making the right decisions. It showed that even though sometimes cheating can make you win, it’s better to safely play the game and do it fairly and get third or even fourth place based on your own abilities not something else. My story teaches a good lesson to people who have considered cheating.
