AEC hosts interactive social justice essay contest

In celebration of the World Day of Social Justice on February 20, 2021, with the theme, "A Call for Social Justice in the Digital Economy," Alternative Education Center in Odessa, TX, is hosting an Interactive Social Justice Essay Contest for Middle/High School students. The essay contest allows students to engage in interschool discussions about how they can help promote social justice and the global goal of peace, justice, and strong institutions by applying any applicable knowledge or skills they have learned from their classes and personal experiences. AEC students will use the essay entries of students from other campuses in their essay analysis activities to learn how to write good essays in preparation for their TELPAS and STAAR. AEC students will choose the 10 best essays to be awarded $20 each. Students' discussions will last until February 25th, and winners will be announced on February 26th. Prizes and thank you letters will be sent to the schools of the winning students.
