2022 Student Journalism Challenge: My Education, My Future

Do you know students who ask a lot of questions? The kind of teens who keep asking “why?” and “how come?” Or the ones who don’t say a lot, but who often come up with an incisive observation?

Teens have a lot of keen questions and so much to say, especially about education—since they spend such a big chunk of their lives in school. That’s why we are calling on students across the nation, ages 13 to 18 years old, to help us understand what it is like to be a teenager in the world today.

The 2022 Student Journalism Challenge: My Education, My Future, is a journalism challenge run by PBS Student Reporting Labs and WETA and sponsored by XQ. This new challenge invites students nationwide to report on various topics that illustrate what their lives are like as students, and what matters most to them in their schools and communities.
