Enlighten America 2020 – the B’nai B’rith Essay Contest for 7th, 8th, & 9th grade students

August 6, 2019 Free

Enlighten America 2020 is an ESSAY CONTEST which focuses on the concepts of tolerance, equality, and respect for all people. It stresses civic harmony over violence and equality over prejudice. To participate, middle and high school students (grades 7-9) should reflect on the significance of the contest theme – respect for our diversity in race, religion, national origin, gender, disability and sexual orientation- by writing about the issues of bigotry and prejudice, how such issues have (or have not) been addressed in recent years, and how such issues affect our quest for peaceful coexistence among our friends and neighbors, and throughout the world.

The 2020 Enlighten America Essay Contest is a volunteer community service project brought to you by the Achim/Gate City Lodge of B’nai B’rith International.
