The U.S. Institute of Peace and the American Foreign Service Association have announced that the topic for this year’s high school essay contest will be the global refugee crisis. Essays are to be written in the form of a memo providing background and policy suggestions from an imaginary foreign service officer posted in Turkey, Kenya, Iraq, or Afghanistan. Entries are due by March 15. For all the details, see http://www.usip.org/AFSAEssayContest
