About the Prize in Ethics
The Prize in Ethics Essay Contest encourages students to write thought provoking personal essays that raise questions, single out issues and are rational arguments for ethical action. Undergraduate students in their junior or senior year of studies are invited to submit essays 3,000-4,000 words in length. A distinguished committee reviews the essays, and a jury headed by Marion Wiesel chooses the winners.
Winning essays present intensely personal stories, originality, imagination, and clear articulation and genuine grappling with an ethical dilemma.
