BFA Writers Grow Platforms


Alek Wolfe, Writer

The BFA Mercury will be showcasing student editorials from BFA’s AP Language and Composition program in the upcoming print edition set to be published on Feb. 21.

Of the dozens of editorials submitted to the Mercury in this effort, only the top four will be selected to be published in the print edition; others will be added to the Mercury web page.

The process for selecting the winners will be done through a “Student Editorial Rubric,” assembled by the Mercury staff and AP Language and Composition teacher Mrs. Larissa Hebert beforehand.  The students wrote editorials responding to prompts from the New York Times Learning Network.

It should also be noted that determining the overall winners will be done without knowing the names of the editorial writers.

Submission topics included education, collegiate athletics, technology, social media, and more.
