About

Both Sides Journal will give students a chance to earn scholarships and get their voices heard through articles written on local, state, and national topics, but there is a small catch. In order to get published in the journal, the student has to find a classmate that will write an article from the opposing side. The goal is to get students to talk to people with differing views of the world. The competing articles will force the students to reason through their arguments and actually consider the opposing view. The articles for each journal will be selected from a large pool, so the arguments will need to be well thought out and clearly stated.  

Our goal is start this coming fall semester, and we hope to able to publish between 3 and 5 journals a semester between the high school and college students. 

Risks and challenges

Our main concern will be the quality of information we receive. We will have to verify each story to ensure that the events have actually taken place to prevent us from spreading “fake news”. To prevent that, we will narrow our selection for the journal down, and then we will start to fact check. Any stories with blatant irregularities will be disqualified.
