This year, we received over 200 essay submissions from middle and high schools across the state of Ohio. Each student talked us through solving a problem in their life, community, or world. We learned about grand topics, like climate change and space junk, and everyday ones, like bullying and access to food.
In the coming weeks, we’ll profile these students, their solutions, and their hopes for the future. For now, congratulations to our middle and high school winners!
