Thank you to everyone who entered the competition this week. We chose our winners this time based on how carefully they followed the instructions: they only entered ONCE and their ideas were original.
Without further ado, the winners are…
devoted_tamarind of Khan Younis Prep A Girls School in Occupied Palestinian Territory, who made a good points about how journalists must do a lot of research and try to navigate their own bias
affable_opinion of Pabna Cadet College in Bangladesh, whose poem described how the news can be empowering for young people.
Your challenge this week is to describe what one of the Topical Talk keywords means in an acrostic poem.
An acrostic poem is where you put the title word down the side and write a SHORT line starting with each letter.
You should choose ONE of the following KEYWORDS for your poem:
1 = THE NEWS
2 = JOURNALIST
3 = REPORTS
For example, if you chose THE NEWS, your acrostic might look like this:
T... thinking about the world
H... hearing about new things
E... endless streams of information
- Keep your lines short by thinking carefully about your choice of words
- Make sure your words describe the original KEYWORD
- Try to think of new ideas that have not been said before
- Follow the instructions carefully
