In June, 2011 the Pulitzer Center partnered with Helium and Population Services International (PSI) to produce the "World Population Approaches 7 Billion" writing contest. The contest began Wednesday, June 8 and has now closed. Congratulations to our grand prize winner, Donna Hicks.

The top article, selected by a panel of judges from the Pulitzer Center and PSI, was chosen from the top four first-ranked articles for each writing prompt on the Helium site. The winning article will be published in Impact, PSI's print magazine, as well as here on the Pulitzer Center site.
