Announcing the Year in Review Writing Contest

From the 2016 election to the Cubs finally winning the World Series, Newsela's end-of-the-year review summarizes what happened in the world this school year. The article comes with a special Year in Review Write Prompt, which asks students to reflect on their own favorite moments from the school year.

A Year in Review: What happened in the news?


Students who answer the Write prompt will have their submissions reviewed by Newsela staff. We’ll pick our favorites from across grade levels and publish the winners to the Newsela blog and Facebook page! To participate, assign the article and have your students complete a Write response by May 26.
