TIME for Kids Seeks Input on Sugary Drink Taxes


This week, over 3 million kids will read about the Berkeley soda tax in TIME for Kids and be asked to give their opinion in a poll on whether sugary drinks should be taxed. 

TIME for Kids also requests in their article that children submit 200-word essays on their opinion, which they may publish in a future edition. Do you know children that want to take a stand? If so, have them send their article (which should include their grade and contact details for a parent or teacher) to [email protected]  by December 1. More information is available here.

This is a great chance for you to engage your kids or kids you work with on this issue! Encourage essay submissions and voting in the poll online, and let us know if a child you know has their essay posted on TIME for Kids!
