Peace Essay Contest to award cash prizes
10/4/2013, 6 a.m.
High school students can compete for $900 in cash prizes in the 2013 Peace Essay Contest sponsored by Atlanta Grandmothers for Peace.
In 600 words, students ages 16 to 19 can investigate and analyze the use of drones – Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – in warfare.
They can examine questions such as “What activities should drones be permitted to undertake?” and “Should we be concerned about other countries targeting U.S. citizens at home or abroad?”
The deadline to submit entries is Oct. 20.
A judging panel of educators, writers and peacemakers will evaluate the essays on originality, content and writing style.
The first-place winner will get $500; second place, $300; and third place, $100.
Atlanta Grandmothers for Peace is part of the Georgia Peace & Justice Coalition, a volunteer network of community, faith, and student organizations/individuals committed to global justice and peace.
