World Citizen Essay Contest

Announcing the 16th Annual
World Citizen Essay Contest

This year, Washington State students in grades 3 through 12 are invited to think like a foreign news correspondent with the following essay prompt:

In our increasingly interconnected world, it is important to be informed of issues and events around the globe in order to better understand and engage with the poeple around us. If you were a foreign news correspondent, where would you like to be assigned? What story would you cover and how would you gather the necessary information? Why do you think this is an important story to tell?

The top three essays in grades 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 will receive cash prizes, recognition on the World Affairs Council website, and will be honored at an awards ceremony in May. This year's prompt allows students the opportunity to analyze the importance of being engaged and informed global citizens.

Essay submission deadline is Friday, March 27, 2015.

Please share this contest with the students and teachers in your life. Find more information at
