Tell your representative what global issue you want them to prioritize!

How can you find the underreported news stories that matter to you, and turn your responses into action?

Join the Pulitzer Center Education team on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 from 4:00-5:00 pm EST for an interactive workshop that explores this question and prepares participants in grades K-12 to enter the Center's fall writing contest, Local Letters for Global Change (deadline: November 13). Find complete contest guidelines here and click here to see last year's winners!

In this interactive session, participants will explore a workshop that teaches students to identify and summarize news stories they care about, make local connections to global issues, and identify potential solutions in their own communities. Students will use these skills to write persuasive letters to their representatives.

This workshop, which is led in partnership with the Washington Teachers Union, prepares students to craft successful entries for the Pulitzer Center's annual fall letter-writing contest, and to see news as a way to spark and inform civic action.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule a workshop for your students at a different time, please contact Education Manager Hannah Berk at [email protected].
