Local Letters for Global Change: A Pulitzer Center Writing Contest – Nov 13
Posted by Pulitzer Center on September 22, 2020
What urgent issues are on your students’ minds, and how can they use writing and media literacy skills to take action?
K-12 students around the world are invited to enter the 2020 Local Letters for Global Change writing contest! In their letters, students will highlight under-reported stories that matter to them, make local connections to systemic global issues, and advocate for policy change to better their communities. Contest deadline: November 13, 2020.
Finalists will be published on the Pulitzer Center website, and winning entries in the high school, middle school, and elementary categories will receive $100 to promote global education in the classroom (distributed to the class teacher).
