YES! National Student Writing Competition   


YES! National Student Writing Competition Want a motivator to take your students’ writing to a higher level? Here’s an opportunity for them to write for a real audience (not just you!), and the chance to get published by an award-winning magazine.

Have your students read and respond to Puanani Burgess’ YES! article, Blessings Revealed. This is the story of a young man, written off as a loser, who discovers his own unique gift. Your students should write an up to 700-word essay that answers the questions, “What is your gift? How do you share it?”

In the fall, we’ll expand this student writing competition to include five YES! articles and an Americans Who Tell the Truth portrait. We’ll let you know when it goes online.
