With the debates upon us and the election drawing near, politics and governmental policy has become a daily discussion in many classrooms. Now is the chance for your students to build critical writing skills, weigh in with their thoughts on the most important issues of the day and earn a trip to DC!
Dear Mr. President is an essay contest for aged 13-20 in which they write a letter to the president telling him which issues you believe are the most important for him to address in the upcoming term. Applications will be accepted until November 27th - but there is no time like the present! While the election is top on everyone's mind, submit your students essays today.
