The California Association of Teachers of English (CATE) is presenting its annual Student Creative Writing Contest. This year’s theme, Voices of Literacy: In Pursuit of Human Rights, echoes the themes at work in Facing History classrooms. We encourage our Facing History teachers to inspire students to produce original works by the deadline of November 1, 2018 based on the following prompt:
When we read about or interact with people with various perspectives, we learn more about our society and our world. Write a poem, story, or essay that shows how our world is made better when we understand the voices of many different people.
