The Alice Paul Institute has extended the deadline for eighth-grade students to submit entries to an essay contest. The new deadline is Monday, Dec. 15.
The contest asks eighth-grade students to compose a 500-word essay addressing the following question:
- Think about the resources and tactics that were used by Alice Paul when she fought for women’s rights. Now think about the tools and methods that are available today. What might Alice Paul have done the same or differently if she had access to today’s tactics, methods, and resources?
Writers are encouraged to visit alicepaul.org to learn about Alice Paul and the fight for women’s rights.
The essay contest will be judged by a panel of notable women and men, including Mindy Holman, president and CEO of Holman Automotive Group, and Jill Horner, on-air talent and owner of JCH Media.
More details about the contest and how to submit an essay online can be found at www.alicepaul.org. The writer of the winning essay will receive a $500 savings bond.
