Call for Submissions

Have you ever accomplished something after nearly giving up on yourself? There's an old saying that goes, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." It means when you want to achieve something, don't let your initial failure set you back. We have all persevered through challenges at one time or another. Maybe it was a school assignment, a musical piece, a new skill, or a personal goal we set for ourselves. The common thread among these is that they take time and dedication to achieve, and there can be obstacles along the way. Yet we keep going, remaining steadfast in our determination to succeed.

In this contest, students will write an original nonfiction story about a challenge they faced with perseverance, how they overcame it, and what they learned from it. The winning stories will be shared via social media and published on the 7EDU website and in our newsletter.
