For extra credit, participate in this year’s New York Times Student Editorial Contest. The contest invites students ages 13-19 to write about an issue they care deeply about in 450 words or less. You can find all the rules of the contest by going directly to the website. After you’ve looked through the contest details, earn extra credit by: 1) showing me a rough draft to get some feedback, 2) submitting to the contest and printing out the email confirmation from the New York Times.
The contest deadline is March 29. Please show me a rough draft well before then in order to maximize the time you will have to revise.
