Amnesty International USA's High School Essay Competition
High School students are welcome to submit essays for the 2011 High School Essay Competition by answering the following essay question:
What is the significance of the popular uprisings for the Middle East North Africa region and for the international human rights community? What is the role of young people and social media in mounting this challenge to so many established governments? And how should an organization like Amnesty International respond to this largely unforeseen development?
Two winners will be selected and awarded cash prizes of $1,500 and a trip to Denver, CO to attend AIUSA’s Annual General Meeting from March 30 - April 1, 2012. Additional awards include two second place awards of $500 and two third place awards of $250! This is an excellent opportunity for high school activists!
