Additional Information

Who can participate? Any 9th to 12th grade high school student (public, private, parochial or home-school) in the United States can participate.

What should I write about?

  1. Pick one social issue and research the cause and extent of the problem. Explain, using necessary graphs, statistics and references.
  2. State how the government is trying to solve this problem and your commentary of their methods.
  3. Suggest a way to help solve this problem using methods that involve moral values and conscience. (e.g. In the AIDS epidemic, instead of using government methods such as passing out condoms and clean needles, can you educate people about morals and abstinence?)

How should I format the essay?

The essay should be 5-7 pages, double-spaced, typed and stapled. Use a cover sheet stating the essay title with name, age, grade level, school name, home address, phone number and email address.

Award ceremony:

An award ceremony will be held in San Francisco Bay Area (time and place to be announced). Winners and their family and friends are invited to the award ceremony. We will pay for the plane ticket and lodging for the top winner. Other out-of-town winners will need to make their own arrangements for travel and lodging to attend the ceremony. Their presence at the ceremony, however, is not mandatory.
