I  was 14 years old and thought I knew it all. I had good grades at school, but at home I fought a lot with my mom and stepdad. My parents divorced when I was young, and I developed anger toward my father for leaving my mom. I had become distant from my extended family as well. I couldn’t stand my hair; I complained about it every day. I am an only child, but I have a stepbrother whom I hated. I wanted nothing more than to hang out with my friends. I always wanted to be left alone, listening to music, surfing the web, you name it. I was always bitter and crabby. I took my life for granted.

May 2010, I’m diagnosed with cancer. Over two months, I was being tested and had two surgeries to determine if I was still in an early stage and could be spared the infamous chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Luckily, the cancer hadn’t spread into my bloodstream and cleaning out the tumors would be easy. Although it didn’t last as long as you would expect, those two months were hell. I cried myself to sleep every night, fearing the changes that accompanied chemo. I would have to be home-schooled. Chemo would cause me to be nauseous, weak, tired. I’d have to be on a strict diet—unhealthy food could get me sick. I would lose all my hair. I would have tubes connected to my heart coming out of my chest, and so much more. Thankfully, after the second surgery I was cancer free. Of course, I have to remain in remission and observation for five years to be sure the cancer doesn’t come back, but there’s only a small chance it will.

    At first, I didn’t understand why I had gotten cancer. I would think, “Why me? What did I do to deserve this? Does God hate me? How could he let anyone suffer what I’m suffering? Especially a kid!”

    For  decades, too many high-school teachers have been instilling persuasive writing skills by teaching students the five-paragraph essay.  You know it:

    It''''s bad writing.  It''''s always been bad writing.  With the Common Core Standards designed to shift the way we teach students to think, read, and write, this outdated writing tradition must end.  If you''''re teaching it--stop it.  If your son, daughter, niece, or nephew (or a young person you care about) is learning it--prepare to engage with the teacher to end  it.

    For the last 30 years, DuPont has been the proud sponsor of the nation''s premiere science writing competition validated by the participation of more than 250,000 students across the United States and Canada. The DuPont Challenge was created to honor the crew of Challenger Space Shuttle and all who endeavor to Touch The Future by pursuing science excellence.

    DuPont is also very grateful for the support that thousands of science teachers have given The DuPont Challenge over the years. In fact, the success of The DuPont Challenge has been due in large part to the commitment of the entire science education community. We give special thanks to our partners at the National Science Teachers Association, Encyclopedia Britannica, Turnitin.com, and A+ Media. The prizes and awards for the 2015-2016 awards will be fulfilled and our winning teachers will be recognized at the 2017 NSTA conference in Los Angeles.
