Quaker essay contest: Earlham School of Religion
- Essay Contest: Call for Submissions
ESR is celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2009-10! In honor of this occasion, we are holding an essay contest. Essays need to address the following question:
What message or gifts do Quakers offer today in answer to the world’s greatest needs?
Contest winners will be invited to attend ESR’s 50th Anniversary kick-off event on Saturday, September 26th and read their entries. Their essays will also be printed in a commemorative booklet, and excerpts may be printed in Quaker publications.
Essays will be read and judged by a three-person panel. One essay will be chosen and given a cash prize in each of the following categories:
Under age 19 - $300 cash prize
Age 19 and over - $700 cash prize
Essays must directly answer the question, What message or gifts do Quakers offer today in answer to the world’s greatest needs?
Essays for the under age 19 category cannot exceed 2,500 words, and essays for the age 19 and over category must be a minimum of 5,000 words and not exceed 7,500 words.
You must submit three copies of the essay with a cover page. Cover page needs to have the title of the essay and your name, while the actual essay should only have the title as to provide for fairness in judging.
