Letter-Writing Contest for Global Change

The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting,in Washington, DC, invites students around the world to enter the 2020 Local Letters for Global Change contest. Students can make their voice heard this election season by writing a letter to a local elected representative that explains the global issue they want their local official to prioritize. They can make their case using Pulitzer Center reporting. When choosing their news story, they should consider why the issue matters to them and how it is relevant to their local community. Any current K–12 student in the United States or abroad may enter. Letters may be written in English or Spanish. Students will be judged separately in high school, middle school, and elementary categories, using the same judging rubric. Each first-place winner in the high school, middle school, and elementary categories will receive $100 to support global community engagement in their classroom. The Pulitzer Center will also post the winning student’s letter, photo, and biography on the center’s website.

Deadline: November 13, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. (ET)
