WRITING CONTEST

The April 2024 - June 2024 prompt is based on

THE INFLUENCE OF POP CULTURE

Submit

Your writing submissions for the April 2024 - June 2024 quarter should be centered on the following prompt: 

From social media posts to widespread cultural movements, pop culture has shaped our beliefs and perception of society. Living in a world with rapidly evolving technology, it is essential to consider the influence of pop culture on our choices, lifestyle, and relationships. For this quarter, we invite you to explore THE INFLUENCE OF POP CULTURE on the world around us, while delving into its impacts on language, health, and communities. The most successful submissions will center on a specific facet of pop culture (i.e. influencers and online trends) and its associated impact (i.e. beauty standards and fast fashion.)

As always, we urge you to do some brief research. You can begin with the articles linked below! Happy writing!
