Competition Connecting World History to Today’s World

The World Historian Student Essay Competition, sponsored by the World History Association (WHA), is open to K–12 students enrolled in public, private, and parochial schools, and those in home-study programs. Each competitor will submit an essay that addresses the issue: In what way has the study of world history affected my understanding of the world in which I live? A committee will judge the essays according to the following criteria: clear thesis; elaboration on the thesis with specific, concrete, personal example(s); evidence of critical thinking, such as synthesis and evaluation, when reflecting on the essay question; organization and fluency; and overall effectiveness of the student’s ability to communicate his or her personal connection with the study of world history. The World History Association established this $500 prize to recognize young scholars. A one-year membership in the WHA will also be included with each prize. Membership in the organization is not a requirement to participate in the competition.

Deadlines: May 1, for entries; winning essays to be announced between early September and early December
