Brady Rochford's Language Arts Class — Grade 8th

“In fall 2021, we asked K–12 students to make their voices heard by writing a letter to a local representative about a global issue they want to see addressed, using Pulitzer Center reporting to make their case…. 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.” Pulitzer Center 2021

Two of our 8th grade students were chosen out of 925 participants. One wrote about deforestation and the other LGBTQ+ rights. They were both recognized for their work. Way to go! Below is a link to all of the winners and finalists.
