Direct Your Students Here

We are excited to announce the launch of the
2018-2019 We the Students Essay Contest. Winners of this year’s contest will receive a total of $20,000 in scholarship funds including a $5,000 award and a scholarship to 2019 Constitutional Academy to the grand prize winner.

This year we are asking students to personalize their essays while encouraging them to expand their understanding of citizenship beyond an abstract concept, envisioning it as knowledge and actions inspired by America’s founding principles.

The specific essay prompt this year is: “What are essential qualities of a citizen in your community in 21st century America?”

Students can find
contest details, including rules and instructions on how to submit an essay on the website.

We look forward to hearing from your students about what citizenship looks like in their communities!
