I have posted before about The New York Times Learning Network, which offers wonderful free educational materials for students over the age of 13. For the first time this year, the NYT is sponsoring a STEM Writing Contest for this age group. Students are asked to submit a 500 word piece of informational writing about a STEM topic which interests them. Submissions are due on March 3, 2020 with the prize of contest winners being published in the New York Times. To access the supporting materials, learn more about the contest, and get a link to their year-long writing curriculum, click here.
