The US Environmental Protection Agency is partnering with Smith Magazine to host and publish “six word essays” about the Earth. Here are a few examples from the site:
On January 18th, the grassroots education reform nonprofit launched its “Six Word Essay Contest” on what it means to be a great teacher. The idea behind the contest was to present an opportunity to celebrate those teachers who had a significant impact on our lives, and “to remind our country of the value of a great teacher.” (And the winner will receive an iPad 2 and a $500 gift certificate to buy school supplies for the classroom of their choice.)
