When The Gospel Coalition launched a worldwide essay competition for young writers focusing on Gen Z this summer, two junior Cedarville University professional writing and information design (PWID) students boldly answered the call. Out of 217 submissions, Abby Jo Thompson won first place in the competition with her submission “Gen Z Needs a Place at Your Kitchen Table,” and Crissa Esse won second place with her essay “Faithful Pastors, You Matter to Your Youth.”
