Local Letters for Global Change: A Pulitzer Center Writing Contest – Nov 13

Posted by Pulitzer Center on September 28, 2021

K-12 students: Make your voice heard this fall by writing a letter to a local elected representative that explains the global issue you want them to prioritize, shows how it connects to your local community, and proposes a solution. Through this contest, students can practice persuasive writing, civic action, and global citizenship, all while exploring the underreported issues that matter to them through Pulitzer Center reporting.

The Pulitzer Center wants to read and share your letters: tell us, and the world, what’s most important to you.

Eligibility: Any current K-12 student across the globe may enter. Letters may be written in English and/or Spanish. Students will be judged separately in high school, middle school, and elementary categories, using the same judging rubric.

Deadline: Saturday, November 13, 2021 11:59pm EST
