OUTSIDE THE BOX:
Know a K-12 student concerned about some global issue? Blend civics with writing: the Pulitzer Center's "Local Letters for Global Change" contest encourages students to write a one-page letter, addressed to their member of Congress, about an issue affecting another part of the world and why their local community should care about it. Contest submissions are due by Nov. 16, but you can use the idea as a civics/research/writing project whenever you want. www.pulitzercenter.org/builder/lesson/local-letters-global-change-pulitzer-center-writing-contest-24976
