Should schools be able to keep tabs on students’ social media to prevent internet bullying? Should there be regulations that prohibit a president from tweeting? With our “We the Students” essay contest, you could win prizes just for sharing your thoughts on these issues!
Each year, We the Students gives 8-12th-grade students from across the U.S. a chance to share their perspective on a trending topic.
This year’s prompt: To what extent in the U.S. does the government–federal, state, and local–have the duty to monitor internet content?
We are awarding $20,000+ in scholarship and prizes to the students who submit the best essays on the topic.
- 1st Place – $5,000 and a scholarship to our 2018 Constitutional Academy in Washington, D.C.
- Runners Up – Six prizes at $1,250 each
