Bill of Rights Institute’s “We the Students” Essay Contest is Accepting Applications to Award Up to $20,000 in Scholarships

Scholarship Essay Contest Ends February 5, 2018

Arlington, VA – The Bill of Rights Institute (BRI), a leading voice spreading our nation’s founding principles in academia and among students, continues to promote their “We the Students” essay contest to help aspiring college students better understand the freedom of speech. The essay contest was launched last fall and there have been many submissions from entrants from a wide range of backgrounds. The contest awards up to $20,000 in scholarships to fifteen winners and the deadline for entries is February 5, 2018.

This year’s essay prompt is: To what extent in the United States does the government – federal, state or local – have the duty to monitor internet content? The question challenges students to look beyond the text of the First Amendment to examine how it applies to some of the most pressing and controversial issues facing society today.

Dr. David Bobb, President of Bill of Rights Institute, said, “Young people have never known a time before the internet. It’s connecting young people to ideas, people and places in ways that previous generations could never have imagined. This essay contest is a great opportunity for students to reflect on today’s fast-paced and increasingly connected world with our constitutionally protected rights and freedoms.”

Dr. Bobb continued, “This contest is a way for young people to think about and apply these important founding principles to today’s society, while also getting a chance to win scholarship funding to continue their studies.”

The essay submissions must be between 500-800 words and expects to expand beyond the 27,000 students it engaged the previous year. Below is the scholarship breakdown for the essay contest winners:

  • 1st place - $5,000 and a scholarship to the Bill of Rights 2018 Constitutional Academy in Washington, D.C.
  • Runners Up – Six scholarships at $1,250 each
  • Honorable mentions – Eight scholarships at $500 each

Established in September 1999, the Bill of Rights Institute is a non-profit educational organization that works to engage, educate and empower individuals with a passion for the freedom and opportunity that exist in a free society. The Institute develops educational resources and programs for a network of more than 50,000 educators and 70,000 students nationwide.
