What we're looking for:
This is your opportunity to give your personal shout-out on issues. Topics can range from local issues that other
schools might be dealing with or subjects of national/international debate. Examples include, "Locker searches
invade student privacy"; "I Want my MP3s: A student defends his right to share music on the Internet"; "The US
should stay out of Iraq," "Why public schools shouldn't fund Bible clubs," etc.
There are three ways to get an opinion article started with Student Exchange. You can send us:

Word documents, ASCII and plain text ONLY. DO NOT SEND PAPER COPIES OF YOUR NEWSPAPER. Only
electronic text files will be accepted.
