Elie Wiesel Essay Ethics
The Elie Wiesel Prize in Ethics Essay Contest challenges college students to analyze the urgent ethical issues confronting them in today’s complex world.
Students are encouraged to write thought-provoking personal essays that raise questions, single out issues and are rational arguments for ethical action. The general topic asks students to "articulate with clarity an ethical issue that you have encountered and analyze what it has taught you about ethics and yourself," although any topic that explores the theme of ethics is acceptable.
The essay should be developed from the personal point of view of the student and may take the form of an analysis that is biographical, historical, literary, philosophical, psychological, sociological, or theological.
Registered undergraduate full-time juniors or seniors at accredited four-year colleges or universities in the United States during the fall 2018 semester are eligible to enter the 2019 contest.
Since Medium is a community of writers, if anyone reading this is a college Junior or Senior, consider entering the 2016 contest, which closes on 12/14/15.
