Student Writer Excitement Building

“Going to a community college can save you $12,000-66,000 over two years.”

“The highest risk a college-bound woman faces for sexual assault in her lifetime is from the first day of her first semester of college, until her first break”

“There are approximately 1.4 million undocumented students in the United States. Do we want to help them contribute meaningfully to this country?”

We’ve been traveling to different DC public and charter schools to work with students on the 4-minute presentations that they’ll be giving to local community, academic, and business leaders next week at the Senior College & Career Writing Fair.

These scholars have been working hard on the argumentative research they did, finessing them into presentations.

It’s not only the research and writing they have been focusing on. “Be sure to remember to breath and speak slowly and clearly.”

“You want to mention your sources right up front so people know what you’re telling them is reliable.”

“How will you hook your audience and make them interested in what you are speaking about?” These 17 and 18-year-olds are working on their presentation skills.

Out of the more than 1,200 students who participated in the One World Education Writing Program, only 20 of them were chosen for the Fair to give their presentation and become eligible for up to a $1,000 scholarship.

Please join us on February 12 from 6-8 pm at the MLK Jr. Library at 901 G Street, NW in Washington, DC.
