The Student Opinion page is published on the third Thursday of every month in the pages of the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
The page is open to local students in grades 5-8 and their homeschooling peers. Submissions are due at least one week in advance! Editorial material may include letters, columns, cartoons, and poems. The goal is for students to express their opinions clearly and to be persuasive.
Email your views to firstname.lastname@example.org. 350 words maximum. Your work can also be mailed or dropped off at the Daily Hampshire Gazette, 115 Conz St, Northampton MA 01061.
We encourage students to write about topics that are important to them, whether that involves school events, pop culture, or politics at local, national or international levels.
Publication in a respected news source such as the Daily Hampshire Gazette is especially significant for high school students pursuing college educations.
