The New York Times Learning Network Announces STEM Writing Contest Winners

In January, Science News in High Schools and The New York Times Learning Network collaborated on a STEM writing contest. Now, the results are in! Eight winning essays were chosen from more than 1,600 submissions and published on The New York Times Learning Network.

A special thank you to six Science News in High Schools educators who volunteered to join the judging process: Allison Lee, Amanda Nix, Bridget Lukomski, Dawn Parker, Meghan Hess Shamdasani and Victoria Bampoh.

Read the Winning Essays

“I absolutely love the articles that have multiple reading levels! Many of our struggling readers are encouraged when their readings are the ‘same’ as everyone else’s, albeit on a lower reading level.”

Tandi Steffens, Grandview R-2 High School, Hillsboro, Missouri

“Science News helps me to tie in course material with relevant and current examples. Our textbooks are bulky and outdated, and the Educator Guides and print magazine help me save time trying to find ways to pique students’ interest in science.”

Wandesha Traylor, Wossman High School, Monroe, LA
