Outlook welcomes the contributions to the letter columns and editorial page.
Limited space is available so we prefer letters to be no longer than 300 words.
Letters can be directed to Outlook, room 206 at Jefferson High School, 1243 20th Street SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52405-1691.
All the letters must contain your full name, grade, signature, and a way to contact you to verify the authenticity of your letter.
We will not publish any letters that have not been signed and verified by staff members. Letters containing what may be considered by the Editorial Board as obscene, libeous, irresponsible, or containing malicious content is not accepted.
