January 2024 will mark the 5th Annual observance of National Conscience Month. Throughout the month Americans from all walks of life will be imagining new ways to celebrate the benefits of using their Conscience to guide their thoughts, words and deeds.
Here’s a special opportunity for high school seniors across the nation! You’re now invited to participate in a unique and creative way––by writing a short essay about using the Conscience. Think of a real situation in your life––or create an imaginary scenario––in which you allowed (or chose not to allow) your Conscience to guide your thoughts, words and actions. What were the results? Were there benefits? Or unexpected consequences? What did you learn from this experience?
One talented student will receive a $2,000 scholarship for higher education, awarded for an original essay of 1,000 words or less.
No membership or purchase of any kind is required to take part in the National Conscience Month Essay Contest. Essay submissions should be sent by email to [email protected]. Submissions should be sent as a PDF attachment. Submissions must be received no later than Sunday, January 29, 2024. Entries will be reviewed by the American Meditation Institute’s National Conscience Month committee members and the contest winner will be notified by email during the first week of February 2024. Submissions may be featured by the American Meditation Institute either online or in print in connection with National Conscience Month programming and promotions, and the right to reproduce submissions is reserved by The American Meditation Institute and its sponsors.
E-mail your essay to [email protected] together with your name, address, telephone number and the name of your high school.
