MIT Tech Review: Young Writers Essay Contest, due Oct. 14

Apologies for this late notice, but the MIT Technology Review is hosting a Young Writers Essay Contest with entries due October 14. People 18 or younger may write up to 1,000 words to answer the question, What do adults not know about my generation and technology? The magazine is looking for “clear viewpoints that don’t usually get expressed in mainstream media, explorations of conflicts between adults and younger people, and smart ways of exploding people’s assumptions … originality of thought expressed in lucid, insightful writing.” The winner will receive $500, a one-year subscription, and publication of the essay in the upcoming Youth issue. Up to five finalists will have their essays published online and receive a one-year subscription.
