We the Students essay contest: The Bill of Rights institute welcomes students to enter this year!
As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr. on January 15, what better time to reflect on the meaning of equality and justice in our world today? 

To truly explore the question in an essay that is between 500 -800 words, students will need to go beyond "dictionary definitions," and express their understanding and reasoning about the connection between these two principles. This reasoning involves a combination of observation, experience, and some pretty "big ideas." What does it take to understand them? To build toward and maintain them? To see them with regard to each other? Why is this relationship important?

The sixteen student winners will receive a total of $20,000 in scholarship prizes. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2021. More details including rules and regulations can be found here
