The Moment Magazine Essay Contest for High School Students - grades 9-12

Students around the world, Jewish and not, are extremely concerned about the mass killings occurring in Darfur. The situation there is truly horrific and deserves our attention and whatever help we can give. Sadly, Darfur is but the latest genocide in a long line of genocides, and is unlikely to be the last. Mankind has a history of systematic murder of a particular group by another group. That's why this school year, Moment is asking high school students to tackle a very serious question that they may very well have to contend with in the future.

THE QUESTION:

What can be done to prevent future genocides?

LENGTH:

500 words

DEADLINE:

February 1, 2007

THREE GRAND PRIZES: $500.

Winning essays will also be published in the June 2007 issue of Moment (after they have gone through the normal magazine editing process). Winners will also receive a free one-year subscription to Moment and 10 one-year gift subscriptions to give to friends and family. Every student who participates will receive a free one year subscription to Moment.

Essays will be judged on quality of argument and creativity of ideas
