young people working with adults in their schools and communities on the
real-world issues that concern them most." Currently, the Feature Stories

Maine, South Dakota, and Texas are doing to fight brain drain and revive
their rural communities. Short Takes provides a glimpse of a video project

high school graduation speeches, as well as two essays in the Young Writers'
Corner: "Quiet Lessons in Prejudice" and "Paper Mill Town"; and Student Work
contains students' interviews of their grandparents on their experiences
during World War II, life in Appalachia, along the Rio Grande in Texas, and
memories of segregation. In the Resources section, there is a list of like-
