Your Voices

Join the Global Education Neighborhood

We at would like to give students all over the world a voice by providing a forum where their life experiences can be shared with our many Web site visitors. Any student can submit an essay of 500 - 2,000 words. We reserve the right to choose the submissions to be published.

Content Guidelines

The submission should be an original essay — not one that has been previously published in any other official news source. The subject matter can focus on any aspect of your life. For example, you can explore issues such as how your school deals with controversial subjects like the conflict in the Middle East? Do they encourage or discourage discussions on topics like this? Have you visited a school or interacted with students from other countries? What did you learn from this interaction? What has been the most memorable experience in your life, and why?


Only one picture can be included with each published submission. If you send one, or more than one picture (in JPG format), please provide captions for each, which identify the person(s) or object(s) shown.

Publishing Schedule

There is no set schedule for the selected submissions to be published, so send them in as soon as you can. You will be notified by e-mail if your essay is chosen, and an approximate publishing date will be provided. We reserve the right to edit any and all content. This refers to pictures, as well as the essay text.


All material sent to the Global Education Neighborhood should be to Teri Schure. Please put "Global Education Neighborhood" in the subject line of your e-mail.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at any time.
