Kenan Moral Purpose Award Essay Contest
In conjunction with the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke, the Parr Center for Ethics announces the 2013 Kenan Moral Purpose Award essay contest for 2013:
The Kenan Moral Purpose Award is given for the best undergraduate student essay on the role a liberal arts education plays in students’ exploration of the personal and social purposes by which to orient their future and the intellectual, emotional, and moral commitments that make for a full life.
Established in honor of the Kenan Institute for Ethics' 15th anniversary at Duke, the award is now in its third year and has been expanded to include students from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, thanks to a partnership with the Parr Center for Ethics. One winner from each school receives $1,000.
Essays address either or both of the following questions:
- In what ways have your core beliefs and larger aims been tested, transformed, or confirmed during your time in college?
- How have you had to defend or challenge prevailing ideas, social norms or institutions and what lessons have you learned from doing so?
The contest is open to all enrolled undergraduates at UNC-Chapel Hill. Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: "Kenan Moral Purpose Award." All entries must be received by 5 p.m. EDT on Friday, April 26.
