2018 Essay Topic:

Articulate with clarity an ethical issue that you have encountered and analyze what it has taught you about ethics and yourself. Note that the most engaging essays often reflect deeply on a particularly meaningful experience or episode in one's life. That approach could focus ethical reflection on: 

  • a personal issue
  • a family matter
  • a travel incident
  • an academic inquiry
  • a dilemma in literature or film
  • a recent article or editorial in a major newspaper
  • a current conflict in American life
  • an international crisis
Write about any specific topic you wish, provided it explores an ethical problem, question, issue, or concern.

Submissions for the 2018 Contest will open soon!
