The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) has named the winners of its 2016 Writing Contest, held annually for participants in the TIP 4th–6th Grade Talent Search. This year, students were asked to write a story about their hometown one hundred years in the future, depicting what the world might look like then. Over one thousand stories were submitted—a record for the contest. Entries included visions of telepathic communication, robots, 3D-printed food, and teacher less classrooms. They ranged from the dystopian to the idyllic, each showing a creative take on where the world is heading.
