Student Voice 2018: One week to go

April 13, 2018 update: We will be notifying the winners of our 2018 contest on Monday, May 14th. 

Students of all ages encounter problems every day. For our essay contest, we asked students at Ohio’s STEM schools to shine a light on how they can solve them.

Over the past three weeks, we’ve already received student perspectives on issues like gun control, depression, homelessness, volunteerism, self-esteem, and deforestation. More are rolling in each day, all responding to the prompt below.


Grades 6-12 should respond to this prompt in under 500 words. Grades 5 and below should record a 90 second video. The contest is open to any student at one of Ohio’s 40+ STEM schools.

Awards include $300 cash, a class pizza party, and student spotlights on our website. Responses are due by 11:59PM on Sunday, March 18th.
