Our PitchIt! Student Essay Contest is an authentic way to get middle and high school students to learn about and express their thoughts about current events from a news literacy perspective.
In addition to exploring an issue important to them, they can help combat misinformation or work to protect freedom of the press (and win prizes!).
To have your students prepare for PitchIt! and get the most out of it, use NLP’s free resources and curriculum guides. You choose the top essays from your class to submit for judging and prizes.
The submission deadline is April 17, 2023!
We can't wait to see what your students submit!
