Students of all ages encounter problems every day. For our essay contest, we asked students at Ohio’s STEM schools to shine a light on how they can solve them.

Over the past three weeks, we’ve already received student perspectives on issues like gun control, depression, homelessness, volunteerism, self-esteem, and deforestation. More are rolling in each day, all responding to the prompt below.


Grades 6-12 should respond to this prompt in under 500 words. Grades 5 and below should record a 90 second video. The contest is open to any student at one of Ohio’s 40+ STEM schools.

Awards include $300 cash, a class pizza party, and student spotlights on our website. Responses are due by 11:59PM on Sunday, March 18th.

More details for each grade level are included in the documents below. Reach out to with any questions!
