The contest invited students in grades K-12 to choose a news story on the Pulitzer Center website and use it as a prompt to write a letter to a local elected representative that explains a global issue the writer wishes to prioritize.
The Pulitzer Center, based in Washington, D.C. and not affiliated with the Pulitzer Prizes at Columbia University, supports reporting of global issues and offers a variety of educational and public outreach programs.
