PROFILES IN COURAGE ESSAY CONTEST
I just ran across a contest for high school students. The Profiles in Courage Essay Contest is conducted by the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation. The contest invites students from across the nation to write an essay on an act of political courage by an elected U.S. official. First place winner gets $5,000 in cash, and $5,000 in a college saving plan. Second place get $1,000 cash, and the next 5 finalists get $500 each.
