We the Students Essay Contest

April 15, 2021

We challenge them to tell us what they think the relationship is between these two principles. 

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 on our website.

Finally, if you are looking for lessons related to the life and work of Dr. King, you can find several on our brand new website here.
