Guidelines for submissions:
Your goal is to tell a great story. Focus on one person and tell how his or her story relates to a bigger global issue. Your reporting must be original, factual and true, and it should consider multiple sides of the story. It should feature at least three voices: an in-person interview with the individual affected, an expert on the topic (like a researcher, a teacher, a doctor, or a professor), and any other third voice of your choice. That third person can be you, the narrator.

Stories can be told using any combination of infographics, audio, video, photography and text. Think carefully about the media you use to tell yours to an audience of peers around the world.

Articles must be no longer than 2,000 words. Video and audio stories must be no longer than 5 minutes. A photo gallery or infographic collection must contain no more than 10 captioned photographs.
