Students Can Win Cash Prizes in the 2018 First Amendment Essay Contest

High school students can enter the 2018 Zach Taylor First Amendment Essay Contest to win prizes. Three students will win cash prizes, courtesy of Freedom of Information Oklahoma. First prize is $300, second place is $200 and third place is $100. Seven students will receive honorable mentions and gift cards. 

The essay contest deadline is October 24.

Students pick one of the freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to write an essay about that freedom’s importance to our daily lives. Rather than write a report, students are encouraged to do factual research and write creatively and personally.

Save the Date: The annual First Amendment Congress will be held Wednesday, November 14, at the University of Oklahoma’s Constitution Hall in Edmond. The theme this year is “It’s Up to You." Sessions will focus on student protests today and yesterday. Dr. Joey Senat will be on hand to moderate the day’s events and present his signature session on The First Amendment Rights of High School Students.
