Essay Contest on Issues Related to Human Rights

The Kemper Human Rights Education Foundation is offering a $1,000 first prize and a $500 second prize to high school students in the United States who are judged to have written the best answers to the following question on American civil liberties and human rights: “The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) claims that ‘US government policies continue to sanction [that is, condone or permit] human rights violations against immigrants. Do you think the ACLU is right? If so, what policies, laws, or other factors (political, economic, cultural, etc.) are responsible for the violations and what actions should be employed to end them? If you think the ACLU is wrong, explain why it is wrong.” The essays will be judged according to how clearly and effectively students answer the question posed and the extent to which their responses are supported by research.

Deadlines: December 10, 2018 (Human Rights Day), for submissions; winners will be announced and awards presented on January 14, 2019
