Sign up for our free weekly newsletter and get five new Student Opinion questions delivered to you every week. Our annual Student Editorial Contest invites you to write an evidence-based persuasive piece on an issue that matters to you. To help jump-start your brainstorming, we have gathered a list of writing prompts from our daily Student Opinion feature that invite you to take a stand. We hope the range inspires you, and we hope the fact that each question links to at least one related Times article gives you a starting point for finding evidence.
