The YES! National Student Writing Competition gives students the chance to write for a real audience and be published by an award-winning magazine. Each quarter, students have the opportunity to read and respond to a selected YES! Magazine article.
For Winter 2012, participants read and responded to the YES! Magazine article, "What's the Harm in Hunting?" by Alyssa Johnson. All of the winning essays are available full-text online.
