More About Sustainability Ambassador’s Great Student Writing Program


The Great Student Writing Program (GSWP) is a series of writing programs run by the Sustainability Ambassadors Writers Group for students in grades 6-12. These programs challenge students to write about topics in the realm of sustainability through open-ended questions. Student entries are then judged by writers in the SAWG. After judging, results of the competition are published on SA’s website and all participants are provided comprehensive feedback.


We feature and share writing with the writer’s consent. Unlimited submissions per person.
