I'm entering a writing competition, because I promised my friend I would :P I'm not too good at writing, I major in sciences and mathmatics. We can write about anything we want to, but it has to be a minimum of 2 pages with minimal quotations and absolutely no plagiarism. We have only 5 hours to write this essay (though I doubt it will take me that long). I want my topic to be mature and intelligent but also witty and interesting. Some ideas I had were...
-Evolution of food
-Evolution of music
-Economic segregation throughout United States
-Evolution of Racial Segregation throughout United States,
-Evolution of social media
-How social media impacts our lives.
-Usage of Corn in our food industry.
-How schools have changed throughout the years.
-How beauty standards have changed throughout the years.

Since you can write about anything you want to, just write on WHAT you want to write on.
Out of your list of idea you had, and it's YOUR essay, I think a good essay topic would be writing about the economic segregation in the United States. It's something you can easily write on in a five hour span AND cite many sources as well (since there are many statistics on economics.) I think this is a great idea!
I'm an upcoming English Arts teacher and I love to write! This sounds like a blast.0
