High school students interested in a chance to win scholarship money may want to check out a new essay contest from the Bill of Rights Institute.
We the Students Scholarship competition seeks to help high school students understand the freedom and opportunity that the Constitution offers. Prizes include $5,000 for the winning essay writer and $500 for his or her teacher.
In 800 words or fewer, students must answer the question: “Since you were born, has America moved closer to or further away from the ideals outlined in the Declaration of Independence?”
If video is more your style, there’s a video contest, too.
The deadline to submit an essay or video is December 5, 2014.
