Templeton Press: New Threats to Freedom Contest, Student Short Form; $5,000 Scholarship.

Student Short Form Contest

Prizes: $5,000 scholarship

Deadline: Entries must be received by 11:59 pm on March 31, 2011.

Create a written or video response to one of these three videos that discuss topics in the book, New Threats to Freedom edited by Adam Bellow (Templeton Press, 2010):
Greg Lukianoff on campus censorship
Max Borders on our compulsive urge to regulate
Michael Goodwin on the loss of the freedom to fail

If you have fresh insights into these issues, we want you to make your voice heard.

It doesn’t matter whether you agree with the original video or not, entries will be judged on the creativity and the quality of the ideas presented. Make us think about these issues in a new way.

Entrants must be enrolled part- or full-time in an undergraduate or graduate degree program at an accredited college or university in the United States or its territories. Entrants who intend to be enrolled by Fall 2011 (e.g. high school seniors or prospective graduate students) will also be considered.

Written entries should be between 300 and 500 words. Entrants must identify the video that they are referencing. Entries must be published somewhere in the public eye: this can be a blog, a school newspaper, or any other print or online publication.

Video entries should be between three to five minutes in length. All entries must identify which video they are referencing. Entries must be published to one of the major video hosting sites such as Youtube, Dailymotion, or Vimeo.

To submit entries, contestants must either send:
A link (if the entry appears online) to tpinfo@templetonpress.org.
