Calling all progressively-minded youth! How would you answer this question:
What do you think is the most serious issue facing your generation?
If you are a high school or university student, you could win $1,000 for answering this question.
The progressive news journal, The Nation, is launching its 6th annual student writing contest. It is looking for thoughtful, opinionated responses to the above question from a generation of young people. This is a great opportunity to let the world know what young people care about.
Today’s students are passionate about many issues including climate change, immigration reform, local politics and their own rising student debt. What do you think qualifies as the most important for your generation?
Responses should be 800 words and are due by June 30. To submit an essay and get more information, visit the Nation’s contest page.
