Since 1989, the Elie Wiesel Prize in Ethics essay contest has encouraged students to write thought-provoking personal essays that raise questions, single out issues and develop rational arguments for ethical action. 

Full-time juniors and seniors are eligible to enter the contest. Students can create an account and submit their application, complete with essay and required entry information online. Deadline for entry is Dec. 5 at 5 p.m. PST. Contest guidelines can be found at www.ethicsprize.org.
